The duo was arrested from Siddhirganj in Narayanganj, said ANM Imran Khan, assistant director (legal and media wing) of the elite force headquarters.
A female student of Begum Badrunnessa Government Girls College on Saturday wrote on her Facebook page that she got on a bus of Thikana Paribahan from Shanir Akhra to go to her college.
She paid Tk 10, but the bus helper demanded Tk15. The helper argued with her boyfriend. While she was getting off the bus, the staff threatened that he would rape her.
Following the Facebook status, the students of seven colleges affiliated with Dhaka University took to the street at Bakshibazar and demanded immediate arrest of the bus helper and driver.
