BCL leader among 4 arrested for gang rape on JU campus

Four students of Jahangirnagar University, including a leader of the university unit Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), were arrested today (February 4) for allegedly raping a woman on campus last night after confining her husband in Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall.

The incident, which took place on Saturday night around 9:30 pm near the Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall’s adjacent forest, has led to the suspension of the accused from the university unit of BCL.

The arrested are prime accused BCL leader Mostafizur Rahman, Sabbir Hasan, Shagor Siddik, and Hasan-Uz-Zaman.

Mostafizur was the BCL unit's international affairs secretary and a student of the international relations department.

Abdullahil Kafi, additional superintendent of Ashulia police, confirmed the matter.

Two others accused, including prime accused Mamun, has been absconding since the incident, the police official said.

According to case statement, the victim, a resident of Ashulia, alleged that the accused Mamun was tenant in their house and had prior acquaintance with Mostafizur. Mamun occasionally stayed with Mostafizur in Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall. Mamun had invited her husband to visit the university under the pretext of purchasing furniture.

On the evening of the incident, the victim’s husband informed Mamun about their plan to buy furniture. Mamun then instructed the husband to call his wife to the university, suggesting she bring some clothes for Mamun as he would be staying on campus for a few days.

Subsequently, Mostafizur and Mamun confined the victim’s husband in room 317 of the ‘A’ block of Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall. When the woman arrived with the clothes, Mamun took them and later deceived her into going to the forested area near the hall under the pretense of meeting her husband from another gate, where she alleges both men raped her.
