Five people who were arrested over gang rape of a woman on moving bus after pushing her husband off it gave confessional statements before a Gazipur court on Sunday.
Gazipur District Judicial Magistrate Court recorded their statement and sent them to jail after they were produced before court seeking remand to interrogate them, said Md Moniruzzaman, officer-in-Charge of Sreepur police station.
The arrestees are Md Rakib Molla, 23, from Narayanganj, Sumon Khan, 20, from Netrakona, Md Sajib, 23, from Mymensingh, Md Shahin Mia from Haluaghat upazila, and Md Sumon Hasan, 22, from Khulna.
Meanwhile, in forensic test of the rape survivor, primary evidence of rape was found, said Dr ANM Al Mamun, forensic department of Shahid Tajuddin Ahmed Medical Coollege and Hhspital.
“For further confirmation her DNA sample will be tested. We suggested conducting an x-ray of her head as she had injuries on forehead,” said the doctor.
According to police, the couple hailing from Naogaon reached Gazipur Bhogra Bypass early Saturday by a bus and got on another bus of Takwa Paribahan heading toward Mawna union in Sreepur upazila.
As the bus reached near Chandna intersection on Dhaka-Mymensingh highway, three more staff of the bus got on it.
When the bus reached near Hotapara bus stand the bus became empty as all the passengers except the couple got down.
After crossing the bus stand the five transport staff snatched money and mobile phones of the couple and shoved the husband down from the bus after beating him up.
They then gang raped the woman until the bus reached Rajendrapur intersection, where they dumped the woman on road and absconded.
Later, the woman’s husband filed a case with Sreepur police station.
The five accused were arrested and the bus was seized after the case filing conducting a drive, said OC Moniruzzaman.
