Another accused in the gang-rape of a 35-year-old mother of six, in Charjubli union under Subarnachar upazila of Noakhali, has surrendered.

Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Char Jabbar police station—also the investigation officer in the gang-rape case—Ibrahim Khalil said: "Md Helal alias Ripon, has surrendered in front of a court on Thursday."

According to court sources, Ripon surrendered before the cognizance court of senior Justice Nobonita Guha, around 3pm Thursday.

With Ripon's arrest, a total of seven accused are now behind bars. Police have arrested five accused while the rest of them have surrendered.

The mother of six was allegedly gang-raped on Sunday evening, and her husband was beaten up, for their perceived offence of voting for a different candidate in the upazila polls.
