A female worker of a readymade garment factory in Gazipur was raped on the way to her hometown in Khulna. The incident took place in Gopalganj city on Monday night. 

Police arrested the rape suspect, Md Khayrul Islam Sheikh, 25, later that night, soon after the incident was reported. The accused is a driver of a battery-run three-wheeler in the city and during primary interrogation, confessed to raping the woman, said police.

The woman filed a case against Khayrul Sheikh with Gopalganj Sadar police station the next day [Tuesday].

Gopalganj Sadar police station OC, Monirul Islam, quoting the case statement, said: “The woman used to work at a readymade garment factory in Gazipur and lived in Jurain in the city. After her factory was shut down due to the district-wide lockdown, she decided to head back to her hometown in Khulna.

“Despite the lack of direct transportation, she used available local transport to reach Gopalganj city on Monday night. There she met a three-wheeler driver who promised to take her to Khulna the next morning, and invited her to stay the night at his house with his mother and sister. Unaware of his deception, she got on his vehicle.” 

“The three-wheeler driver later went on to rape her at an isolated place before abandoning her there.”

Afterwards, some locals rescued her and helped her report incident at Gopalganj Sadar police station, leading police to apprehend the suspect that night, he added.

Case investigation officer, Gopalganj Sadar police station Sub-Inspector Aslam Uddin, said the woman underwent the necessary medical tests on Tuesday.da
