Gang rape, murder: Two arrested after 7yrs

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) has arrested two suspects over the gang-rape and murder of an 8-year-old girl in Chauhali Upazila of Sirajganj in 2017. 

Sabbir Hossain, 20, a cousin of the victim, and Shakib Khan, 21, son of a member of the local union council, were arrested from Dhaka and Sirajganj respectively on April 19 in this connection.
Rezaul Karim, superintendent of police at the PBI’s Sirajganj unit, at a press conference on Monday said the suspects planned to rape the girl when the she went to Dattakandi High School to visit an Independence Day fair on March 26, 2017.

According to the plan, in the evening Sabbir and Shakib took the girl to Madhyashimulia Char where six others were waiting. They raped the girl at a crop field and strangled her to death as she threatened them to tell others about the incident.

The next day, police recovered the body and submitted an investigation report without identifying any suspects. But the victim’s family refused the report so the court ordered a re-investigation by the PBI.

The PBI official mentioned that another suspect, Milon Pasha, son of another union council member, had been released on bail after his arrest six months ago. They are trying to arreste five other suspects.

Rezaul Karim further said the arrestees have given confessional statement to a court about their involvement in the crime.
