One more person has given a confessional statement about his involvement in the Noakhali gang-rape case.

The suspect, Henju Majhi, 29, son of Chan Miah of Charjubli union, gave his confession under Section 168 at the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Shoeb Ahmed, on Saturday.

Later, the court sent him to jail.

So far, five people have given their confessional statements of their involvement in the rape.

Police arrested 11 people in connection with the case.

On January 9, the two main accused, Md Sohel and Jashimuddin, confessed their involvement under Section 168, to Senior Judicial Magistrate Nabanita Guha’s court.

Seven of them were remanded for five days each. Two of them gave confessional statements on the third day of the remand.

Detective Branch (DB) of police is in charge of investigating the case.

Earlier on January 7, two other accused in the case, Salahuddin and Abul, confessed about the rape to the same court.

DB OC Abul Khair said: “The accused have given their confessional statements under the Section 168 regarding their involvement in the rape of the woman.”

The OC also said: “During the investigation, Henju’s name came up from the victims and the confessions. He was in hiding and was arrested from Comilla on Friday.”

A 30-year-old woman, mother of four, was gang-raped, reportedly by a group of local Awami League members.

The woman’s husband, who filed a case against nine people with Char Jabbar police station, said the group of miscreants—wielding firearms—barged into their home around midnight, tied him and his children up, forcibly took his wife away from their home, and gang-raped her.

The husband claimed they attacked his wife because she had voted for the local BNP candidate in the 11th general election held on December 30, 2018.
