A Cox’s Bazar court has granted three-day remand to Ashiqul Islam, the main accused in a case filed over gang-rape of a female tourist in Cox's Bazar.

Cox's Bazar Senior Judicial Magistrate Hamimun Tanzin passed the order on Tuesday afternoon after police produced him before it with 7-day remand prayer.

Earlier on Monday, Ashiqul Islam was brought to Cox's Bazar from Dhaka.

Ashiqul Islam was arrested from Madaripur on Sunday (December 26).

On Tuesday (December 21), 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.
