RMG worker ‘killed after rape’ in Bogura

A garment worker was allegedly killed after being raped in Gandagram village of Bogura’s Shajahanpur upazila early Friday.

The deceased was Mim Aktar, 19, a garment worker of Ashulia industrial area.

The victim’s mother said divorcee Mim was returning to her mother in Bogura on Thursday night.

She boarded a Bogura bound bus at 6:00pm and contacted her mother using the phone of the bus supervisor.

Her phone was snatched away by her husband who left her over a family feud caused by her urge to work for helping her mother financially.

Later at night, Mim went missing and never returned home.

The bus supervisor told the victim’s mother that she had taken a rickshaw from Banani intersection at 12:00am.

Additional superintendent of police Sanatan Chakrabarty said Mim’s body was found in a field in Gandagram village in the morning. Later her mother identified the body.

Police suspected that the victim was raped before murder, the ASP said.
