A female student of Rajshahi University (RU) was abducted allegedly by her estranged husband from the university campus on Friday morning.

The victim is a 4th year student of the RU Bangla Department. She used to reside in Taposhi Rabeya Hall of the university, reports the UNB.

Quoting witnesses, RU Proctor Lutfar Rahman said the female student filed a divorce petition two months ago to get separated from her husband Sohel Rana after nine months into their marriage. The divorce will come into effect within the next one month.

However, Sohel did not want to get separated from the victim.

Sohel appeared in front of the female dormitory this morning and tried to convince the female student to withdraw the petition while she was going to appear in an examination with some of her classmates, the proctor said.

At one stage, they locked into an altercation and Sohel forcibly dragged her into his car, he quoted the victim’s friends.

Lutfar Rahman also said they informed the matter to police.
