CHATTOGRAM: The rickshaw driver who helped police has been rewarded to arrest three accused of a gang rape in Chittagong by calling the national emergency service 999.

Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) Commissioner Krishna Pada Roy handed over a cheque to rickshaw-puller Md Abdul Hannan in recognition of his humanitarian work at the Commissioner’s Office in the city’s Dampara area on Wednesday.

In the early hours of Monday, a housewife was going to Sholoshahar by rickshaw.

As the rickshaw reached in front of Sadia’s Kitchen in the GEC area, three criminals intercepted it, took the woman to a nearby tin-roofed house forcibly and raped her there.
