The 23-year-old victim of this incident filed a complaint against 4 people including her boyfriend at Mohammadpur police station on Sunday (March 31). The case she filed is 184.

The accused in the case are the girl's boyfriend Sun (26), her two friends Himel (27) and Rocky (29). The accused woman's name is Salma alias Jhumur (28), she is said to be the wife of an expatriate.

Police say, with the help of Salma, the rapists brutally tortured the girl.

Azizul Haque, Assistant Commissioner (AC) of Mohammadpur Zone of Tejgaon Division of DMP confirmed the case.

He said that a young woman was rescued from a flat in Nabinagar housing area after receiving a phone call. In this incident, the victim filed a case as plaintiff. An operation is underway to arrest those involved. I can tell you the details tomorrow.

Meanwhile, according to the complaint of the young victim, she was kept in the fourth floor flat of Salma in Nabinagar since March 5. Salma helped in the rape of those three young men.

In the case, the young lady also mentioned that the young lady was staying at her elder sister's house as her parents got separated and later they got married elsewhere. At that time, she met a young man through her sister-in-law. Later, the young woman met Salma alias Jhumur, the wife of an expatriate through that young man. At one point, the young lady left her sister's house and went to a rented flat in Nabinagar with her (Salma).

Later, they met a young man named Sun through Jhumur and developed a love relationship between them. At one point, Sun raped her for the first time on February 3 at that house in Nabinagar by showing the temptation of marriage. Similarly, on February 27, Sun raped her again. Later, when pressured for marriage, boyfriend Sun stopped communication.

Then, on March 5, two friends, Himel and Rocky, came to the house and told him to close her eyes saying that Sun would give him a surprise. Salma left the room saying to bring food. When she closed her eyes at San's words, the three of them bound the young woman's hands, feet and eyes and put tape on her face. Later on Salma's words, leaving Himel on guard, the others go outside to fetch the shackles. Himel raped her when she was alone.

Claiming that her hands and feet were tied with shackles from that day, the young woman complained in the case, a day later on March 7, Rocky came to her house and raped her. Salma, who was at home, only unshackled her legs while going to the food and bath room.

The next day, Salma recorded the video of Sun's rape on her mobile phone. From then until March 28, the three raped her and videotaped each other. At this time Salma helped them.

On the night of March 30, when no one was at home, the victim of torture managed to catch the attention of a local man by shouting through the window. Later, the man called 999 and the police came forward.

Inspector Tofazzal of Mohammadpur police station said, "On receiving information through 999, the young woman was rescued and given medical treatment." She was brutally tortured.

He also said, 'We are on a mission to catch those involved. I can tell you the details later.

Police's Criminal Investigation Department (CID) said that Aminur Rahman and Abdur Sukkur, two brothers of Teknaf's former MP Abdur Rahman Bodi, are associated with Cox's Bazar-based drug trade.

Additional IGP Muhammad Ali Mia said this in response to a question from journalists at a press conference organized at the CID's media center in Malibagh in the capital on Wednesday (April 17) in the afternoon regarding the confiscation of assets of drug lords.

The CID chief said action will be taken against those found involved with drugs, whoever he is. We found the involvement of his (Bodi's) brothers and their followers. We will interrogate Bodi's two brothers and if his (Bodi's) name comes up there we will also arrest him. No one will be exempted in the matter of drugs.

Asked about the role of Bodi's two brothers, the CID chief said that Aminur Rahman and Abdur Sukkur brought Yaba from Myanmar in different ways. After that they are delivered to different places by their assigned associates. Already 6.9 acres of land belonging to Bodi’s brothers has been identified. Besides, the information of 40 percent of the land worth Tk. one crore has been found. Land information has not been digitized yet. As a result, the work of collecting this information is going on at the field level in various ways. We can give more details about this later.

Initially, the CID investigated 35 cases and found various movable and immovable properties including money (kept in bank accounts), purchased land, houses and flats illegally earned from the drug business of the godfathers of drug cases. The amount of illegally earned money in these cases is about Tk. 178.44 crore.

Additional IGP Mohammad Ali Mia said that CID has already frozen 9.14 acres of land and 2 houses worth Tk. 8.11 crore of the godfathers in 3 cases of croc and drug related money laundering and Tk. 1 crore 1 lakh 23 thousand 425 kept in the bank in various cases. Another 35.173 acres of land, 12 houses and 1 car valued at Tk. 36.82 crores are in process of sale.

The CID chief said, you know that at least 80 thousand drug recovery cases are registered in the country every year. Most of those arrested are drug peddlers and users. At times, investigating officers end their investigations within these two categories. As a result, the original godfathers of drugs remained hidden. But since 2021, the CID has taken the initiative of arresting the drug godfathers and collecting the assets and depositing them in the government coffers. This will create a panic among the drug dealers of the country. They will leave the drug trade and do legitimate business. Besides, no one will be encouraged to join this profession. Because you know drug is a capital less business. As a result, many people get involved in illegal business to take advantage of easy income.

Obstacles in the way of consolidating victory are communal, terrorist, evil forces like BNP. Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader commented that this force must be defeated and resisted.

He said this to reporters after paying tribute to the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of the Bangabandhu Bhavan in Dhanmondi on the occasion of the historic Mujibnagar Day on Wednesday (April 17) morning.

We got our independence only through the Mujibnagar first government. Obaidul Quader said in response to the question that after getting independence, what achievements are left for us that we have not yet accomplished, I have said in my speech that there is still to be achieved. Obstacles in the way of consolidating victory are communal, terrorist, evil forces like the BNP. This power must be defeated, resisted.

He said, today we will defeat, overcome and resist the anti-freedom terrorist forces, all the evil forces who are obstacles in the way of our prosperity and we will take our fight forward. The dream of victory is on the way.

Regarding the demand of BNP to declare the day as Republic Day, Awami League General Secretary said, I cannot say anything about any demand in isolation. There is a Cabinet, there is a Prime Minister. It is also necessary to know why they are raising the demand after so many years.

He said that on this day we will take an oath in the spirit of the liberation war and we will move forward in a continuous struggle to build Bangabandhu's dream of Sonar Bangla under the leadership of Bangabandhu's daughter Sheikh Hasina. We will carry the dream of Bangabandhu to the Mujib Bengal of 2100 to build a developed and prosperous Bangladesh, this is our oath.
