Police on Sunday arrested seven college students for their involvement in the rape of a 17-year-old girl, videos of which were captured on camera and later spread among people in Sirajganj's Ullapara upazila.
The incident occurred last year on September 19, but the girl's father filed the case nearly eight months later on April 11 this year, reports our Pabna correspondent quoting Dipak Kumar, officer-in-charge of Ullapara Police Station.
The arrestees are: Tanveer Hossain, Bondhon, Rifat Hossain, Purnota and Meem, all HSC examinees of Ullapara Biggyan College and Tushar Hossain, a student of Dhaka College as well as Sumon Hossain, student of Tangail Polytechnic Institute.
All of them are from different villages in the upazila.
The incident occurred when key accused Tanveer asked the victim, whom he knew from before, to his home. He then raped her and captured the video of the incident, Sub-Inspector Mosharaf -- also the investigating officer of the case -- said quoting the case statement.
The victim and key accused Tanveer used to go to the same school before moving to different colleges.
All seven of the arrestees have been sent to jail through the local court, the correspondent reports quoting police.
