A 24-year-old woman was gang raped in a moving bus on Dhaka-Aricha highway in Dhamrai Sunday night, police said.
The woman, a garment factory worker, had boarded the bus around 10:00pm to go home after work, when she was attacked.
Police arrested bus driver Babu Mollik, 24, his two assistants Abdul Aziz, 25, and Bol Ram, 20, and two other transport workers Shohel Rana, 20, and Mokbul Hossen, 40 in this connection.
She told police that the suspects locked the door and closed the windows after all the other passengers got down from the bus.
According to the woman's complaint, four of the arrestees tied her hands first. The driver then gave the wheel to Shohel and raped her, said Rejaul Haque, officer-in-charge of Dhamrai Police station.
The officer added that Abdul Aziz had also raped her before a team of police on patrol heard her screams and started chasing the bus.
Police stopped the bus and caught the suspects around midnight, he said, adding that the woman was sent to a hospital for medical tests.
