A Rajbari court on Sunday sent three alleged rapists to jail for gang-raping a young physician in Basantapur area of the district, rejecting their bail petitions.  

The convicted are Rana Mollah, 24, Hannan Sardar, 26, residents of Mojlishpur village in Basantapur union of Rajbari sadar and Mamun Mollah, 20, a resident of Dattapara village.

The female doctor was allegedly gang-raped by six to seven people in Basantapur area in Rajbari sadar on Friday night.

According to the case statement, the girl was going to Shibrampur of Faridpur from Goalando of Rajbari around 7pm on Friday by an easy-bike. 

When it reached Basantapur area, Mamun, driver of the easy-bike, and his two associates, dragged her out from the vehicle and took her to a nearby bush.

Later, they violated her one after another and called their three to four other associates over phone and they also violated her.

Locals rushed in hearing the scream of the girl and rescued her but the culprits fled away.

Later, a team of Rab-8, in a drive, arrested the trio from Basantapur Bazar on Saturday noon on charge of raping the doctor. 

During primary interrogation, they all confessed their involvement in the incident, said additional superintendent Md Rois Uddin, commanding officer of Rab-8 Faridpur camp.
