Two of the men were caught by locals after they heard the woman’s screams

A 31-year-old woman was raped allegedly by three men near Nilgaon Putikata bridge in Jalalabad upazila of Sylhet district.

One of them, police said, took the woman out on Monday night on the pretext of wedding shopping. He and the woman were in a relationship.

Two of the accused -- Taj Uddin, 22, and Ekhlasur Rahman, 27 -- have been arrested.

The third accused, 27-year-old Phul Mia, an auto-rickshaw driver, is on the run.

On Monday evening, Taj asked the woman to meet him so that the two could go for wedding shopping. Later, Taj picked her up from the meeting place in an auto-rickshaw in which Ekhlasur was already seated.

The trio took her near Nilgaon Putikata Bridge and raped her, Sylhet Metropolitan Police said in a release. Taj and Ekhlasur were caught by locals after the woman raised an alarm.

The duo was later handed over to the police.

The woman lodged a complaint at the Jalalabad police station on Tuesday, based on which an FIR for rape was filed against the accused.

Efforts are on to nab Phul Mia who is on the run, a police official said.

The woman has been sent to the local one-stop crisis centre for treatment.
