A local baul singer was allegedly gang-raped in Ashulia, on the outskirts of Dhaka, after she was invited to a "musical show", police said today.

The victim, 32, hailing from Narayanganj, filed a case with Ashulia Police Station yesterday, said Abdul Awal, officer-in-charge of the local police station.

She was admitted to the One-Stop Crisis Centre of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), the OC said.

“She was invited to a purported musical show  by another female singer at a rest house in Ashulia,” he said.

“As she reached there, 10 to 12 men detained her to a room and raped her overnight,” the police official said quoting the victim.

Police are conducting drives to arrest the culprits, he added.
