BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said that the ruling Awami League’s activists have become reckless after the election.
He said this while referring to the gang-rape allegations in Subarnachor and Noakhali’s Kabiraghat in his statement at a press conference on Sunday.
“As we were recovering from the horrific news of the torture of Parul Begum for voting for the paddy sheaf in Subarnachar, we have heard of local Jubo League activists gang-raping a mother of three after taking her mother and children hostage,” he said adding that there are allegations that AL supporters raped a woman on the night of December 30 after tying up her husband and children.
The news of another gang-rape in Friday came amid widespread condemnation of the incident. Police have arrested the chief suspect in that case.
The husband of the Kabirahat victim is allegedly in jail over violence before the election.
Rizvi said the husband was a local Jubo Dal leader.
“The husband of the rape victim is the joint general secretary of the Dhansiri Union Jubo Dal. This is a terrible sign of inhumanity,” he said.
He also called upon party activists to stand by the victim.
