A readymade garment factory worker has allegedly been raped in Gazipur. The suspected rapist also reportedly threatened the victim of sexually assaulting her two sisters if they report him to police. A case was filed with Joydebpur police by the victim’s family. Sources say the accused, 35-year-old Momen Khandakar, is known as a drug dealer in the locality. The victim was admitted to Shaheed Taj Uddin Ahmad Medical College hospital on Wednesday morning. She said she was returning home on Monday night around 9pm with her co-worker Zakir when someone grabbed her companion from the behind and tied him up. Momen took away her mobile phone and took her to a secluded place where the victim was abused until 5am. He was repeatedly threatening to kill the victim and only let her go on condition of not reporting him. She returned home and disclosed the incident to her mother. The victim’s brother-in-law said that they have told the local councillors about the incident. They have reported Momen and his unknown associates to police.
