On January 5, the DU student was raped while she was walking from Kurmitola bus stop to a friend’s house near Shewra in the afternoon. She had just gotten off a university bus.

After regaining consciousness around 10:00pm, she somehow managed to make it to the house of her friend, who later took her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. 

The next day, the girl’s father filed a case with Cantonment Police Station, accusing unknown people.

Rab arrested Majnu on January 8 and handed him over to DB, which is now probing the case.

Meanwhile, investigation is at the final stage and a charge sheet will be submitted after investigators get reports from the one-stop crisis centre of Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
