Police arrested four suspects - Al Amin, Jewel, Mintu and Hridoy - over the incident after the victim filed a complaint with the Pallabi police station on Sunday.
The child has been sent to the One-Stop Crisis Centre (OCC) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) for medical tests, Pallabi police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kazi Wazed Ali told Dhaka Tribune.
The OC said: "The victim came to her family’s house in the Pallabi area from her ancestral home in Noakhali on Saturday. At night, the 13-year-old got into a quarrel with her parents. At one point, the victim got angry and left the house. Her relatives searched for her but were unable to locate her.
"The four youths, who found the girl alone on the street, took her to their bachelor quarters (mess) saying that they would provide her shelter. When the victim woke up on Sunday morning, she became aware of being raped,” the OC added
Later, the girl went to the police station and filed a complaint over the incident.
"We are suspecting that the rape survivor was made unconscious with sedatives and then was gang-raped," the police official further said.
