A readymade garment (RMG) worker on Tuesday night was reportedly gang-raped by three men in Charfesson municipality area of Bhola, where she came in search of her husband, who recently left her, reports news agency UNB.
Locals said the 21-year-old woman from Kishoreganj married one Mizanur Rahman of Charfesson upazila around four years ago while working at a RMG factory in Dhaka.
But Mizanur left his wife two months ago and returned to his home district recently. The victim came to the launch terminal in the upazila on Tuesday evening in search of her husband.
When she was asking people if they knew her husband, auto-stand lineman Moslehuddin, Monir and Nayon said they do and told her that they would take her to Mizanur.
Later, the three men took the victim to a garden and raped her.
Locals said police arrested the trio, residents of the upazila, but a local Sramik League leader managed to get Moslehuddin free.
Sub-inspector Aziz of Charfesson police station said they rescued the victim from Aslampur area and sent her to Charfesson hospital for treatment.
He claimed that they arrested Nayon and Monir. “Moslehuddin is on the run,” the SI added.
