A gang of robbers had entered the home of an UAE expatriate by breaking a window around midnight on December 12. In the absence of any male member of the family, the robbers raped the four women at gunpoint. The robbers finally left around 3 am after taking cash, jewellery and mobile phones. One of the victims was an expectant mother, two others were her sisters-in-law, and the fourth was a relative who had come to visit the family.
The women reportedly went to Karnaphuli police station the next day to lodge a complaint. But the police allegedly refused to file the case over a complication with their address. Following an intervention by state minister for land Saifuzzaman Chowdhury Javed, police finally filed a case five days after the incident. Moreover, it was alleged that police had delayed arresting the accused even after filing of the case. – News Desk
