A woman has been allegedly raped by two men in Habiganj’s Nabiganj upazila.
The heinous crime took place at the upazila’s Purbo Jahidpur village in the early hours of Monday, family members and neighbours said.
The housewife, whose husband works as a day labourer in Moulvibazar, was admitted to Habiganj Sadar Hospital by the neighbours later in the afternoon.
The hospital’s emergency department doctor Rajib Chowdhury said they would be able to determine whether the woman was sexually violated after the medical examination.
According to neighbours, two youths – Mujibur Rahman and Fazlu Mia – of the same village broke into the family’s house in the dead of night and took turns in raping the woman.
They, however, fled after the neighbours rushed in after hearing her cries for help.
Nabiganj police station OC SM Ataur Rahman said no complaint or case was filed over the said incident. “But we will take necessary steps once we receive a complaint.”
