A madrasa teacher, an imam of a mosque, and a college student landed in jail yesterday on charges of gang-raping a woman engaged to one of their friends and filming the incident.
Abid Hasan alias Razu, a teacher of Jamiya Kasimia Madrasa in Rupatoli area of Barishal city; Abu Sayem Hawladar, imam of Baitul Mamur Mosque in Babuganj upazila; and Hruday Fakir, a student of BM College, were sent to jail by a court after police arrested them. They are aged between 25 and 40.
They were arrested after the woman filed a case with Airport Police Station in Barishal early yesterday, said its OC.
According to the complaint, one of the accused called the woman over the phone on September 28 and told her that her fiancé was in a relationship with another woman.
As the woman did not believe it, the accused asked her to come to a house and walk in on her fiancé and the other woman. When the woman went there, they confined her to a room and gang-raped her.
They also filmed the incident on a phone and threatened to upload the video on social media if she told anyone. Blackmailing her, the three accused raped her on multiple occasions over the last two months.
Recently, they also demanded money from her. As she refused, they sent the video to her fiancé's father, the complaint said.
