Rape accused Bogra Sramik League leader, 2 associates on remand

BOGRA : A court here on Sunday placed a local Sramik League leader and two of his associates on a three-day remand in two cases filed for reportedly raping a girl and torturing her along with her mother in the district town, reports UNB.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Abdullah Al Mamun passed the order after Inspector (Operation) of Sadar Police Station Abul Kalam Azad, also investigation officer of the cases, produced them before the court seeking a seven-day remand for them, said Additional Police Super (Media) Sanatan Chakrawarty.
Police arrested Tufan Sarkar, convener of the town unit of Sramik League, and his three associates-Rupom, Ali Azam and Atikur Rahman-on Friday night over the incident.
The IO, however, did not seek remand for Atiqur as he gave a confessional statement before a court on Friday night under section of 164, the police officer said.
