The ASI did not confess to his involvement in the rape case

A court in Rangpur has sent the Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Raihanul Islamto jail in connection with the gang-rape of a girl in grade 9.

Jahangir Alam of the Rangpur Senior Judicial Magistrate’s Court passed the order to send Raihan to jail on Sunday afternoon, after the ASI refused to confess to his involvement in the rape case.

Raihan was previously placed on a five-day remand by the court on Wednesday afternoon,  according to Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) sources.

Jakir Hossain, superintendent of police at the PBI, said:“Raihan unveiled important details about the incident during his five-day remand. We will proceed with our investigation based on that information.”

ASI Raihan of the Detective Branch of Rangpur Metropolitan Police (RpMP) had a love affair with the rape-survivor, a schoolgirl of Mainakuthi Kachutari area under Haragachh police station.

ASI Raihan took the schoolgirl to the rented house of one Sumaiya Akhter Meghla alias Aleya in Cigarette Company’s Kadar Pool area under Haragachh Police Station and raped her with the assistance of Meghla on October 23.

Later, Kalam and Babul -- with the assistance of Meghla and her associate Shurovi-- raped the schoolgirl in the house the next night, on October 24.

The incident came to light when the student fell ill following her gang-rape.

Later, the victim’s father filed a case against Raihan, Meghla and some unknown people with Haragachh police station of RpMP.

The case was later transferred to the Rangpur PBI, who arrested five persons from different parts of Rangpur and Lalmonirhat districts, police said.
