Noakhali woman molestation: Another accused held

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) in a drive arrested another accused from Daudkandi in Cumilla early Wednesday in a case filed over molestation of a housewife in Begumganj upazila of Noakhali.

 

The arrestee is Kalam.

 

Lt Col Khandaker Saiful Alam, commanding officer of Rab-11, said that being tipped off, a team arrested Kalam around 5:30am.

 

The Rab official said Kalam was present on the spot during the torture incident and he is also active member of notorious ‘Delwar Bahini’.

 

He will be handed over to Begumganj Police Station, said the official.

 

The victim was allegedly molested by some local miscreants at Ward No. 9 of Eklashpur Union of the upazila last month but the incident came to light after a video of the incident went viral on the internet.

 

The miscreants tortured the housewife after undressing her and filmed it.
