Ethnic woman gang-raped in Sherpur, youth held
Sherpur: A woman of the Garo community was reportedly gang-raped by two young men at Kharamora village in Sribardi Upazila.
Police arrested one of the accused Arfan Ali, 35, son of Mafizul Haque of Balijuri village in the same upazila, reports the UNB.
Victim’s family member claimed Arfan Ali and his accomplice entered the woman’s house introducing themselves as law enforcers and soon tied up the woman with a piece of cloth and violated her there by turn.
Hearing the screams of the victim, next-door neighbours rushed in and managed to nab Arfan and later handed him over to police while the other accused fled the scene.
Officer-in-Charge of Sribardi Police Station Mohammad Ruhul Amin Talukdar said police produced Arfan before the court seeking three-day remand after the victim filed a case accusing two including Arfan.
The victim was sent to the hospital for medical check-ups, the OC added.
