According to RAB, the incident took place on January 15.

The victim was given food laced with sedatives and the four took turns to rape her.

It came to the fore after a video clip went viral on Facebook where the suspects were seen saying, ‘Hello friends, we might be inside jail tomorrow. So, there’s a little chance to meet you again.’

The victim’s mother filed a case over the incident with Sreepur Police Station on January 16 and sought RAB’s help in this regard.
