A six-month pregnant housewife was admitted to Lakshmipur Sadar Hospital on Wednesday after she was allegedly gang-raped at Monowara Mansion in north Temuhoni of Lakshmipur.
Lakshmipur Sadar model police station OC Mohammad Lokman Hossain confirmed the incident.
According to the victim, a garments worker from Chittagong, she went to Lakshmipur earlier on Monday to meet her husband.
Upon finding her husband’s mobile phone turned off, she was waiting for him when a young man came and lured her with the promise of shelter at Monowara Mansion. There, two more men joined him and they took turns in raping her.
The miscreants also reportedly snatched Tk5,200 from her.
Later, locals rescued the woman after hearing her screams.
