Detective branch inspector Md Wahiduzzaman, the investigative officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet with the chief metropolitan magistrate's court in Dhaka.

Police have charged Najmul Hasan Shohag, joint convener of the organisation, with rape; and Hasan Al Mamun, a former convener of the organisation, under DSA.

Joint convener of the organisation Md Saiful Islam, vice-president of the organisation Md Najmul Huda and DU student Abdullah-Hil-Baki were also exempted.

On 21 September, 2020, a female student filed a case with city's Kotwali police station accusing VP Nur and five others of rape and abetting rape.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff had a good friendship with Mamun but at some point he started hinting his interest in an intimate relationship.

On 3 January, 2020, Mamun had allegedly raped the plaintiff in his residence in Lalbagh after luring her with promises of marriage.

Later Najmul Hasan Shohag allegedly raped her on 9 February the same year, in a Chandpur-bound launch after promising to take her to meet Mamun, who went into hiding over the rape charges.
