A female constable of Turag police was admitted to the one-stop crisis centre at Dhaka Medical College Hospital yesterday, three days after she had been gang raped by her ex-husband, who is a sub-inspector, and his associates in the city’s Khilgaon.

The couple got divorced a year ago following family feud as SI Kalimur Rahman of the Special Security and Protection Battalion was demanding Tk10 lakh as dowry.

Victim’s elder sister, who requested not to be named, told the Dhaka Tribune that her younger sister got married to Kalimur four and a half years back when she had been working at the Rajarbagh Police Lines. After three years of their marriage, a girl was born while Kalimur got promotion as SI.

“At that time, he demanded Tk10 lakh as dowry from us and also started threatening my sister to quit job. Following the feud, they got divorced a year ago.

“After the divorce, my sister started staying with my mother in Chakuliar of Joydebpur along with her daughter and got transferred to Turag police station. 

“On November 28 last year, Kalimur, went to the house and took the baby away.

“On June 10, when my sister went to Rajarbagh Police Lines, Kalimur took her to a house in Khilgaon area saying that her daughter wanted to see her. But confining her there, Kalimur along with his associates gang raped her.”

She said her sister had been sedated before they raped her.

“After gaining consciousness the next day, she went to a relative’s house and informed the family members about the incident.” 

She was first taken to Rajarbagh Police Lines Hospital.
