Two girls gang-raped in Thakurgaon
A Thakurgaon court yesterday sent two men to jail for their allegedly involvement in the gang-rape of two teenage girls in the district’s Pirganj upazila.
The accused are Nayan Islam, 22, of Senua Baniapra village, and Mohammad Sabuj, 20, of Bhamradaha Chilapara village in the upazila, said police.
Khairul Anam, inspector (investigation) of Pirganj Police Station, said the duo was sent to jail after the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Marjia Khatun recorded their statement.
They were arrested on Tuesday night after one Abu Sultan filed a rape case against five persons.
According to the case statement, the victims went to Pirganj town on Monday to purchase a cell phone battery.
In the market, the victims met Nayan and went to Lahagara Bazar on his suggestion as they knew each other from before. Three more men — Hiren Chandra Shil, 26, Farid Hossain, 22, and Selim, 22 — also went to the Bazar with Nayan.
Later, Hiren offered the girls potato chips and juice, made them unconscious and took them to Sabuj’s house. The accused then raped the girls repeatedly and left them on a nearby rail track at Bhamradaha village on Tuesday.
Returning home, the girls shared their experience with their family members who later informed police about it, the OC said.
Police are conducting drives to nab the rest accused, he added.
