The case lodged with Cantonment Police Station over the rape incident of a second-year student of Dhaka University (DU) has been handed over to DB on Monday night. The student’s father filed the case with the police station in the morning. 

Confirming the matter, Gulshan Division Deputy Police Commissioner Sudip Kumar Chakraborty said, “DB police had already started an investigation over the rape incident.”

Earlier, a Dhaka University student — a student of the Department of Sociology of the university — raped in the capital’s Kurmitola area on Sunday night. 

Quoting the victim, ASI Abdul Khan, in-charge of the DMCH outpost, told that she got on a university bus at 5:00 pm for going to a friend’s house. “After reaching the Kurmitola bus stand area, the miscreants grabbed her from behind, gagged her and took her to an isolated place nearby. Later she was raped and tortured,” he said.    

Later after receiving the news, her friends brought her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital, he added. 

She was admitted to the One-Stop Crisis Centre (OCC) at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Monday.

RAB and DB collected evidence from the scene at Kurmitola on Monday on the outskirts of the Golf Club.
