Woman raped at gunpoint in Jamalpur

English Version

At gunpoint in Jamalpur’s Islampur Upazila on Saturday, a woman from a minority community was raped.

In the Rouharkanda Palpara neighborhood of Islampur Municipality, Islampur Police Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md. Majedur Rahman said that Kamal Hossain, 35, from the Darjipara area raped the lady on Wednesday night.

It was the next day that she notified Kamal’s family members and filed a police report.

He raped her when she was alone, threatening to murder her as well as her three-year-old kid, “the husband of the victims tells the police.”

It was his desire that the offenders be punished with “exceptional severity.”

Efforts are being made to apprehend those responsible, according to the Islampur police chief.
