Four of the accused are on the run
Police have arrested a man for gang raping a woman in Bhola’s Monpura upazila.
The prime accused, Alauddin, 35, was arrested early on Wednesday, Monpura police OC Said Ahmed confirmed to Dhaka Tribune.
He added that the police were on the lookout for Md Belal, Md Helal, Md Yusuf Dalal and Md Selim -- the four other accused who are on the run.
According to the case, the woman was asleep at her home with her two children on Sunday night, when she heard several knocks on the door and a woman’s voice.
The attackers stormed into the room, tied her up, carried her to the adjacent garden, and raped her.
She was rescued by neighbours at around 1am from the garden in a critical condition and taken to Bhola District Hospital.
The woman filed a case against five people with Monpura police on Monday after her husband, a fisherman, came back from the sea.
