A 15-year-old Rohingya girl was gang-raped on Sunday night after being kidnapped at gunpoint by a group of local youths at Shilerchara, near the Kutupalong refugee camp in Ukhiya upazila, Cox’s Bazar. 

Ukhiya police station OC Md Abul Khayer said an aunt of the victim also lodged a case at the station in this regard on Monday.

According to case document, Syed Ahmed and Nurul Alam, both from Rajapalong union’s Abul Boli Bhita area, along with their cohorts had picked up the girl from her shelter at Kutupalong camp.

Locals rescued the girl on Monday morning and took her to the camp. Later, she was sent to Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital by police for medical treatment, said OC Khayer. 

He said they were conducting raids to catch the two alleged perpetrators.
