"I’ve been physically assaulted and they even attempted to rape and kill me. I want justice. I’ve asked for help from so many people. However, they just heard what I said and commented that they'll 'look into it,' while the fact is that no one has helped me yet," she said in her post.

In her post, Pori Moni addressed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as her "mother", writing: "I was about two-and-a-half years old when my mother died. Today, I need a mother more than ever. I’ve never seen you, accepting any injustice quietly. I need you; I need your help to stay alive. Please save me, mother." 

Pori Moni revealed the name and details of her alleged assaulters at a press conference at her Gulshan residence later on Sunday night, hours after making the Facebook post.
