A Sylhet court on Wednesday placed another accused Mahfuzur Rahman on a five-day remand in a case filed over the gang rape of a woman in a dormitory of Sylhet Murari Chand (MC) College.

Sylhet Metropolitan Magistrate Court-2 passed the order after Inspector of Shah Poran police station Indranil Bhattacharya, also the investigation officer of the case, produced him before the court with a seven-day remand prayer.

Sylhet Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner (prosecution) Amulya Kumar Chowdhury confirmed the matter to Banglanews.

Earlier on Tuesday, the same court placed Mahbubur Rahman Rony, Rajon Miah and his aide Ainul on a five-day remand. 

Prime accused Saifur Rahman and Arjun Lashkar were put on a five-day remand each in the case on Monday.

What happened at MC College on Friday night?

A newly-married woman was raped allegedly by a group of Chhatra League activists in a dormitory of Sylhet MC College on Friday night.

The incident took place after the couple went to visit the college on Friday. At that time, four to five youths took them inside the dormitory forcibly.

As the husband protested the matter, they beat up him and then, they took the couple to the college hostel at about 8:00pm. There they tied up his husband in a room of the hostel and raped the woman, said Shah Paran Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) Abdul Kayum Chowdhury.

On information, Police rescued the couple from the dormitory around 10:30 pm and admitted the woman to the One-Stop Crisis Centre at Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College and Hospital, he added.

Later, the victim’s husband filed a case with Shah Poran Police Station early Saturday against six named accused and three unnamed accused.

The accused are Saifur Rahman, Shah Mahbubur Rahman Roni, Arjun Lasker, Mahfuzur Rahman Masum, Tarek Ahmed and Rabiul Islam.

Among the suspects whose names were mentioned in the case, Saifur, Mahbubur, Arjun and Mahfuzur are students of MC College while Tarek and Rabiul are outsiders.
