SHERPUR, July 26: In an undeliverable incident of humiliation, a young housewife has been allegedly stripped naked during arbitration at Shapmari village in Sadar upazila.
Upset at the utter humiliation, the victim filed a case against four people with Sadar Police Station on Sunday in this connection.
According to the case statement, the victim went to her father's house at Shapmari from her house at nearby Badapara village after her husband, who works at a washing company in Chittagong, left for his workplace on July 19.
Meanwhile, victim's brother Azmir Hossain, a garment worker, had an altercation with his wife Shyamoly Begum over his job which went to arbitration on Friday.
The victim had an altercation with Shyamoly's cousin Joynal Abedin Hasi, son of Ayez Uddin of the same village, after she sided with her brother at the arbitration.
At one stage, Hasi and his associates Mintu, Bhutto and Mithu stripped off her clothes and dragged her around in front of the villagers present at the arbitration.
Hasmat Ali who was present at the arbitration said no one came in the rescue of the victim. "Although I managed a scarf for the girl, Hasi and his men took it away too and burst out wild laughing," he said.
Victim's mother Asma Begum said, "It would have been better had I not noticed the humiliation. The criminals were laughing like movie villains while my daughter was screaming for her chastity. I want punishment of the offenders."
Officer-in-charge of Sadar Police Station M Mazharul Karim said he assigned a policeman to investigate the allegation. "A drive is on to arrest the culprits," he said.     ?UNB
