Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Al Mamun announced the verdict in the well-known case on Sunday. Shumi, 16, was overjoyed to hear the verdict. She was only 11-year-old at the time.

“I did not help her. I had said before I was not at fault. They could have ended the trial earlier.”

The High Court commuted the death sentence awarded by a trial court to Oishee to life in prison last year after a petition challenging the verdict.

The underage house help was tried by a juvenile court.
