Police on Friday rescued a female union parishad member, who was reportedly raped and confined in a house, from Rajshahi’s Mohanpur upazila.

The victim lodged a case against five people, including Mojibur Rahman, with Mohanpur Police Station at night in this regard.

According to the case, Mojibur Rahman, one resident of Dhorsa Mollapara village, brought the victim to his house at 9.00pm on Wednesday with the temptation of marriage.

He confined the UP member in his house and raped her for two days and fled the house early Friday.

Later, supporters of Mojibar Rahman beat the UP member and kicked her out of the house.

The victim then made a phone call to national emergency hotline 999 and sought help from police.

Being informed, police rushed to the spot and rescued the UP member and brought him to Mohanpur Police Station.

Jahanabad Union Parishad chairman Hazrat Ali said he visited the spot after hearing the matter.  The UP member was sent to the police station for taking legal actions.

Mohanpur Police Station officer in charge Touhidul Islam said a case has been filed with the police station in this connection.
