Khulna, Aug 7 (UNB) – Two railway policemen, including the officer-in-charge of Khulna Government Railway Police (GRP) Station, were attached to the GRP Lines for their suspected involvement with the reported gang-rape of a woman.
The action was taken against Railway Police Station OC Osman Goni and Sub-Inspector Nazmul Haque, said Assistant Police Superintendent (Railway Circle) Firoz Ahmed.
On August 5, a three-member probe body was formed to look into the reported gang-rape of a woman by five railway policemen before she was arrested as a drug peddler.
The probe body, led by Firoz, was asked to submit its report within seven working days.
Victim’s cousin said the woman came to Khulna from Jashore on Friday by train. As she got down at Khulna Railway Station around 7:30pm, some policemen took her to Khulna GRP Station where five policemen, led by OC Goni, gang-raped her.
The next day, police produced her before a court showing her arrested with five bottles of contraband Phensedyl.
As the victim raised the allegation in the courtroom, the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court ordered medical test on her.
