Bags, wristwatch, pens and pant were recovered from the scene of rape of a second-year student of Dhaka University (DU) in the capital’s Kurmitola area. In addition, the student’s books and inhalers were also found.

Members of the law enforcers have identified the scene and collected evidence from the bushes in Kurmitola on Monday morning. 

In addition to the RAB, a team from the Police Intelligence’s Detective Branch (DB) monitored the scene.

The student’s father filed a case with the Cantonment police on Sunday night.

Confirming the matter, the Cantonment Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kazi Shahan Haq said, “A case has been lodged with the police station after the DU student’s father’s complaint. The accused will be arrested very soon.”

Kazi Shahan Haque said senior police officers of the Gulshan department met the girl at Dhaka Medical College Hospital and also spoke to the family. 

The student got on a university bus at 5:30 pm for going to a friend’s house. After reaching the Kurmitola bus stand area at 7:30 pm, the miscreants grabbed her from behind, gagged her and took her to an isolated place nearby. Later she was raped and tortured.

Later, the student who appeared to be traumatized and disoriented at the hospital, told her fellow students that she fainted at the time and regained consciousness after 10:00 pm. She then called her friends - rescued her and brought her to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital. 

She was admitted to the One-Stop Crisis Centre (OCC) at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) at around 1:45 am on Monday. She is currently undergoing treatment there.
