Bogura student rape accused Tufan gets bail

A local court today granted bail to Bogura's Sramik League convenor Tufan Sarker in a sensational case filed for abducting and raping a female student and torturing her mother in 2017.

After hearing, Judge Fazlul Haque of the women and children's repression prevention tribunal granted him bail, PP Naresh Mukherjee confirmed on Sunday.

Tufan on July 17, 2017, reportedly abducted the student from her home and raped her and then asked his party cadres and Bogura municipality woman councillor Marzia Akter to make sure everything was hushed up.

They picked up the student and her mother on July 26 the same year and tortured them for four hours and then shaved their heads.

Her mother then filed a rape and torture case against 10 people, including Tufan, his wife Asha Sarkar, Asha's elder sister and the councilor on July 28, 2017. Police arrested Tufan on July 29, 2017, in connection with the case.
