The man who raped a Dhaka University (DU) student in Kurmitola was a serial rapist and a mugger, the Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) said.
“Mojnu (the arrestee) choked the victim (DU student) and dragged her to a nearby bush. He hit the girl and tried to kill her after rape,” said Director (Media) of the Rab headquarters Lt Col Sarwar Bin Kashem.
During initial interrogation, he has admitted to being a serial rapist and a drug addict.
“Mojnu, 30, hailing from Hatia, used to rape physically challenged women and beggars,” Lt Col Sarwar told reporters at the Karwan Bazar media centre.
The rapist was arrested from Dhaka’s Shewra rail crossing area around 4:05am. Rab recovered the mobile phone of the victim and some other items belonging to her from Mojnu.
The DU student was raped in the city’s Kurmitola area on Sunday night. She is now undergoing treatment at the One-Stop Crisis Centre (OSCC) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
