3 held for ‘raping’ garment worker in Dhaka

Police have arrested three youths in connection with “raping” a garment worker in Mirpur area of Dhaka.

Two of the arrestees are Rony, 28, and Rubel, 30, said Anwar Hossain, officer-in-charge (OC) of Shah Ali Police Station.

While the victim was returning home from market in Gudaraghat area of Mirpur-1 yesterday evening, the accused allegedly took her to a nearby rickshaw garage, the OC said.

Later, Rony reportedly raped her while his two cohorts assisted him, OC Anwar added.

Law enforcers detained the accused from Gudaraghat area after the victims filed a case against the three last night with the police station, the police official said.

Medical test of the victim was conducted at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) this morning, said Sub-Inspector Atikur Rahman, also investigation officer (IO) of the case.

A Dhaka court later sent them to jail after they were produced before it, the IO added.
