The victim was abducted on the way to her home, and raped by three men

A man has allegedly handed over his step-daughter to miscreants—who gang-raped her—for money, in Ashulia.

Ashulia police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Javed Masud relayed this to Dhaka Tribune, explaining that the culprits had said this during preliminary interrogation—while in remand—on Tuesday.

Police have arrested five people in connection with this incident. They are: Md Sajib Hawladar, 28; Mamun Islam, 22; Nure Alam, 25; Habib, 20; and the step-father Taijul Islam, 40.

OC Javed said one of the accused, Mamun, regularly used to go to the victim’s house and visit her step-father. Mamun also supported the step-father, financially, from time-to-time.

He continued: “I believe he helped the culprits—who gang-raped his step-daughter—to abduct the victim – because of his greed for money.”

The culprits are on one-day remand at Ashulia police station right now, the OC added.

The victim, a housewife, was abducted on her way to her home—in Kathgora area—from her aunt’s residence on May 25.

Ashulia police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Fajikul Islam said: "The culprits were aided by Taijul, the step-father, and Sajib, the caretaker of her aunt’s house, in the victim's abduction.”

He said they took her to an abandoned house—where the other three culprits who raped her were waiting.

The victim herself filed a case with the Ashulia police station in regard to the incident the next day. Therefore, police conducted a drive in different parts of Ashulia and arrested the five culprits on Monday.

Later, they were produced before the court, which has ordered one-day remand for the culprits.
