A case was filed against seven people on Thursday in connection with Wednesday’s gang rape of a woman in Cox's Bazar.
The woman's husband filed the case under the Prevention of Women & Children Repression Act at Cox's Bazar Sadar Model Police Station, said Cox's Bazar police super Md Hasanuzzaman.
Names of four accused and three unidentified men have been mentioned in the case. The four accused are Ashiqul Islam Ashiq, Abdul Jobbar Joy, Babu and Riaz Uddin Chhoton.
The 22-year-old woman came to Cox's Bazar with her husband and their eight-month-old baby on Wednesday morning and checked into a hotel.
In the afternoon, the family went out for a stroll on the sea beach. At Laboni point, the woman's husband had an altercation with one of the accused after he accidentally bumped into the latter.
What started as a small argument soon snowballed into a major altercation and the young man called his accomplices to the spot. They kidnapped the family in two auto-rickshaws and took them to a desolate place near the golf club where three of them allegedly violated the woman.
The woman's ordeal did not end there. The family was taken to Zia Guest Inn from the golf club area, where the three accused again took turns to rape her for hours. They released her in the early hours of Thursday and allegedly threatened to kill her family if she narrated her ordeal to anyone.
Lieutenant Colonel Khairul Islam Sarkar, commanding officer of Rab-15, said their team rushed to the family's rescue soon after they got the call from the woman.
