Case filed against six over MC College gang rape

A case has been filed over the alleged gang rape of a woman in front of her husband at MC College hostel, Sylhet. The victim's husband has filed a case with the city's Shahparan police station against six people.

Meanwhile, the police have been conducting raids to nab the accused. Police recovered domestic and foreign weapons from the room of an accused rapist around 2am on Saturday. However, the police have not been able to arrest any of the accused so far.

Confirming the matter, Shahparan Police Station OC Abdul Qayyum said, "We raided the Saifur Rahman's room of MC College hostel at night and recovered various weapons including a pipe gun, four Ramdas and a knife." 

Earlier in the evening, the young woman came to visit MC College with her husband. At this time, some people from the college campus forcibly took them to the college dormitory and gang-raped the wife while keeping her husband in a room there. Shahparan police rescued them at 11 pm. The woman is currently undergoing treatment at the OCC of Sylhet Osmani Medical College Hospital.

MC College Hostel Super Jamal Uddin said, "I have heard someone detains the husband and wife in the hostel. Later the police went and rescued them." He declined to comment further.

MC College principal Saleh Ahmed said police were at the scene. They are looking into the matter. However, as far as I know, a husband and his wife were detained in the hostel.
