Incidentally, the 25-year-old girl was gang-raped at the MC College dormitory in Sylhet last night (September 25) while visiting her husband. Later that night, the victim’s husband filed a case with the city’s Shahparan (Rah.) Police station. After this incident, anti-rape movement started in the whole country including Sylhet.
