3 staffers confess to Gazipur gang-rape on running bus
The law enforcers today arrested three staffers of a bus in connection with an incident of gang-rape on a running bus in Bhogra area of Gazipur.
The arrestees are Amir Hossain (27), Amit Shil (22) and Mozammel (23), reports our Gazipur correspondent quoting police.
The arrestees have confessed to the crimes after they were produced before a Gazipur court, said Nandalal Chowdhury, inspector (investigation) of Bason Police Station under Gazipur Metropolitan Police.
The accused were sent to jail after recording of their confessional statement, he said.
The incident took place on February 12 midnight near Bhogra Bridge area on Dhaka Bypass Road, the police official said.
The victim and another woman boarded the bus from Tongi to go to Gazipur. Near Bhogra intersection on the road, the other passengers were dropped leaving the two women alone. As they tried to get off the bus, the staffers closed the door and tied up the older woman and violated the other, threatening to kill them if they protested.
Next morning, the culprits left the women on the bus and fled the scene. Locals later rescued the women after hearing their screams.
On information, police seized the bus and conducted a drive in the city and arrested the trio from different areas.
The victim's companion filed a case in connection with the incident with the police station on Thursday.
