A second-year student of Dhaka University was allegedly raped and tortured in the capital’s Kurmitola area on Sunday night.
Her fellow students and several DU employees brought her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital around midnight and got her admitted there.
Some of her friends who rescued her said she was walking from Kurmitola bus stop to a friend’s house in a nearby area around 7:30pm.
Soon after getting down from the university bus, someone grabbed her from behind, gagged her and took her to an isolated place nearby. She was raped and tortured there, they said, quoting the victim.
