Two officers at Saturia police station in Manikganj were withdrawn on Sunday after they were accused of abducting two women and raping one.

Manikganj Superintendent of Police, Rifat Rahman Shamin, said Sub-Inspector Sekandar Hossain borrowed Tk1 lakh from a woman in 2014, promising to return it with interest. On February 6, the woman went to the police station with her niece. They met with SI Sekandar who took them to a bungalow nearby, where Assistant Sub-Inspector Mazharul Islam joined them.

After speaking for a while, the two police officers separated the two women and locked them in adjoining rooms. The younger woman was forced at gunpoint to consume yaba, and was subsequently raped several times. The two women were locked in their rooms till Friday morning, when they were thrown out of the bungalow.

On Sunday afternoon, the younger woman submitted a written complaint to the Manikganj SP, which led to the withdrawal of the two officers and formation of a committee to investigate the matter.

The SP pledged the guilty would not be spared at any cost regardless of their police credentials. He said he spoke to both victims and has instructed the investigation committee to swiftly submit their report to take action.
