Judge Kamrunnahar on 11 November directed the police not to accept any rape case 72 hours after the rape incident.

She came up with the directive while passing the verdict in a case filed on charges of rape of two university students in the city’s Raintree Hotel four years ago. The tribunal of judge Kamrunnahar also acquitted the five persons accused of committing rape.
