Two policemen have been withdrawn for allegedly violating a 22-year-old woman after keeping her confined to Saturia Dak Bungalow in Manikganj.

The two cops are SI Sekandar Hossain and ASI Mazharul Islam of Saturia Police Station. They were attached to the district’s police lines, said Rifat Rahman Shamim, superintendent of police in Manikganj.

Further action will be taken against the duo if they found guilty after investigation, said the SP.

The victim filed a written complaint to the SP in this regard yesterday morning.

According to the victim, SI Sekandar borrowed Tk 1 lakh from her aunt five years ago but he did not return the money. To realise the amount, the aunt and the victim went to the police station to meet SI Sekendar on Wednesday afternoon. But SI Sekendar took them to the rest house where ASI Mazharul also reached after a few moments.

Both the policemen kept the victim and her aunt confined in separate room at the rest house. The victim was forced to take yaba tablets at gunpoint. She was repeatedly raped by the duo and was released on Friday morning.
