The man allegedly violated a woman sexually at a hotel last month

Police have arrested the man accused of raping a female tourist from Dhaka at a hotel in the Bandarban district town last month.

Md Rasel, a 25-year-old jeep driver, was arrested on Monday afternoon during a special drive conducted in Chakaria’s Fasiakhali area of Cox’s Bazar, said Bandarban Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Shahidul Islam Chowdhury.

He told the Dhaka Tribune that Rasel had confessed to committing the heinous crime during preliminary interrogation.

Prior to the arrest, the police team led by Shahidul had also raided the Paschim Nulua area in Chittagong’s Satkania upazila.

Rasel is originally from that area, but he lived at Talukder Para in Bandarban’s Meghla area.

Sub-Inspector Durjoy Bishwas also said that Rasel would be presented before the court on Tuesday.

On the evening of February 26, Rasel had tricked the female tourist, who was waiting for a friend at the town’s bus station, and took her to Parjatan Motel Megla.

There, he checked in with the victim to Room No 205 and raped her.

Police rescued the woman from there in the early hours of February 27, after her friend lodged a complaint with them.

The woman later filed a case against Rasel at Sadar police station.

Apart from impounding his jeep, police that day had also detained Rasel’s accomplice Osman Gani, a security guard at the motel.
