Earlier on Sunday evening, a woman, mother of six children was gang raped for voting for a different candidate in the upazila polls

Police on Tuesday arrested three more suspects accused over the third gang rape incident in Noakhali's Subarnachar upazila.

The accused were identified as: Rubel, 22, Raihan, 18, and Arman Hossain, 19, son of Yusuf Majhi, the fourth accused in the case.

Police in separate drives arrested Rubel and Arman from the Ramdoyal area of the Ramgati upazila and Raihan from the Hajiganj area in the Lakshmipur district.

Earlier on Monday, Charjabbar police arrested the prime accused Abul Bashar, 30, and Yusuf Majhi, 42, following a case filed with the station by the rape survivor's husband on the same day accusing a dozen men.

Charjabbar police station OC (Investigation) Ibrahim Khalil confirming the matter said: "The accused Abul Bashar and Yusuf Mahi were produced before a court seeking a seven-day remand prayer on Tuesday."

"The court set Wednesday for the remand hearing and sent the arrested to jail," he added.

Additional Superintendent of Police Deepak Jyoti Khisa said: "Police have now arrested five suspects accused in the case and are currently working to arrest the rest by every possible means."

Noakhali General Hospital Resident Medical Officer Syed Mohiuddin Abdul Azim said: "The rape survivor has gone through all necessary medical exams on Tuesday."

Earlier on Sunday evening, a woman, mother of six children was gang raped by men led by Yusuf Majhi, a supporter of the vice chairman candidate who won the upazila election.

She along with her husband were returning home in the Charjabbar union after voting for a vice chairman candidate.

The husband and wife were thrashed for their audacity to vote for a different candidate.

Similarly, on the eve of the December 31 polls, a woman was gang-raped by 10-15 associates of an Awami League leader in Subarnachar’s Charjabbar after she voted for a BNP candidate.

The case sparked widespread criticism of political violence, which saw the Awami League leader – the prime suspect – expelled from the party, and his lawyer held in contempt of court after manipulating to secure his bail.

Just a month later, a 13-year-old girl was raped by two men in Subarnachar’s Purbacharbata union on January 31.
