Girl’s ‘gang-rape’ at birthday party: Four put on remand in Gazipur

A court in Gazipur on Tuesday placed four people on a three-day remand each over the alleged gang-rape of a teenage girl at a birthday party at Nayanpur of Sreepur upazila.

Those remanded are Sharif Hossain, 18, of Noisapur village of Hossainpur in Kishoreganj, Imran Hasan Sujon, 19, of Ujan Chandrapara village of Ishwarganj in Mymensingh, Sharif Uddin Molla, 20, of Nayanpur of Sreepur, and a 16-year-old boy from Trishal in Mymensingh.

Judge of the Judicial Magistrate Court-3 Md Iqbal Hossain passed the order for the adult accused while Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge MLB Misbah Uddin placed the lone teenage accused on the remand.

The four invited the victim to a birthday party on January 15 where they offered her food laced with sedatives and later violated her in turns.

It came to the fore after a video clip went viral on Facebook where the suspects were seen saying, ‘Hello friends, we might be inside jail tomorrow. So, there’s a little chance to meet you again.’

The four were arrested on Friday and Saturday soon after the victim’s mother filed a case over the incident.
