Police arrested five people in connection with a case filed for gang-rapping a tourist in Cox's Bazar.

They were arrested in a drive on Saturday night.

On Tuesday, the woman's husband and a stranger got into an altercation after bumping into one another at Laboni Beach in the afternoon.

In the evening, some men picked up the husband and the couple's eight-month-old child in an auto-rickshaw. On the other hand, three others took the woman to a secluded place and raped her.

Later, they took her to Zia Guest Inn and raped her again several times.

RAB rescued the survivor around 2am on Thursday and sent her to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital one-stop crisis centre for treatment.

On Thursday night, the woman’s husband filed a case over the incident.
