Police arrested a man and his elder sister on charge of raping a 20-year-old girl in Ashulia of Savar.

The arrestees were identified as Mamun (30) and his sister Anjuara Begum (35). They hailed from Gaibandha.

Abdur Rashid, inspector (operation) of Ashulia Police Station, said they detained the duo late last night, hours after the victim filed a complaint with police.

This morning, the victim filed the case against the two with the police station and both were sent to a Dhaka court later in the day seeking five-day remand prayer for each, he added.

Quoting the victim and the case statement, the inspector said the victim, a resident of Netrakona, came to her sister's house at Ashulia's Narshighpur area for a job some days back.

On October 7, she was introduced to Anjuara in a bus. The latter then lured the victim to her house saying that she will arrange a job. As the girl went to Anjuara's rented house at Ashulia's Polashbari area, she proposed to arrange marriage with her brother Mamun.

On the night of October 8, Mamun with the help of Anjuara entered the room of the victim and raped her, the inspector said quoting the case statement.

Later, Anjuara and Mamun drove out the victim by giving her death threat and threatened her not to disclose the matter to anyone, according to the case statement.
