Shafaat’s driver Billal, 26, the fourth suspect, videotaped the incident. Shadman had introduced the two girls to the rapists, and he was the one who convinced the two to visit Raintree Hotel that night, telling them they would be attending a birthday party. Police first attempted to arrest the men on Tuesday, going to the house of Shafaat, and found that he and his passport were missing. The same day, officials at the Regent Park Resort in Thakurbari Thillapara in Sylhet recognised Shafaat, accompanied by three others, as he unsuccessfully tried to rent a room there. They left before the officials could notify the police.
