A 19-year-old woman was sedated and raped in Dhaka’s Demra area on Sunday night, police say.
Demra police said the woman came to visit her elder brother in Kadamtali area some 15 days ago.
On Sunday, she went to the Konapara fair in Demra and met a distant relative and his friend.
“The duo apparently mixed sedatives in soft drink which the young woman drank. Later, they took her to a nearby field where she was raped by multiple people,” Azharul Islam, a Sub-inspector of Demra Police Station, said.
Md Shafiqur, Officer-in-Charge of Demra Police Station, said that after being informed by the woman about the incident, police rescued and admitted her to the One-Stop Crisis Center of Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
“She is under treatment and unwell at the moment. We will take legal action after medical tests and once we get information from her,” he added.
