A Gazipur court has sent the four friends, who allegedly raped a teenage girl at a birthday party at Nayanpur of Sreepur upazila, sent to jail.

Judge Iqbal Hossain of Gazipur Judicial Magistrate Court passed the order on Sunday afternoon. The court also fixed January 28 for next remand hearing.

The alleged rapists are Sharif Hossain, 18, Imran Hassan Sujon, 19, Ahsan alias Hassan, 18 and Sharif Uddin Mollah, 20.

Earlier, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested them conducting drives at different places in Gazipur and Mymensingh.

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.
