Gang rape in city: Prime suspect held

A man has been arrested over the gang rape of a teenage girl in Dhaka's Lalbagh area on Saturday.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested prime suspect Monir Hossain Shuvo from Lalbagh area in the capital on Thursday morning.

Confirming the news, Khandaker Al Moin, RAB's legal and media wing director said Shuvo was a neighbour of the victim.

The victim, who is now being treated at Dhaka Medical College Hospital's one-stop crisis centre, said that Shuvo and Al Amin picked her on February 12 morning when she was going out. Then they took her to an unknown place where they, with two others, drugged and raped her in phases for four days.

 Later on Wednesday afternoon, the culprits threw her from a car at Dhaka University's TSC area.
