At least 30 people including a Union Parishad chairman have been sued for reportedly torturing five people, including a woman and her two daughters in Harbang union of Cox's Bazar's Chakaria.

Parvin Akhter, one of the victims, lodged the case with Chakaria police station on Tuesday accusing four named people while 26 others were unknown.

The accused, Harbang UP chairman Miranur Islam, Nasir Uddin, 28, Nazrul Islam, 19, and Jasim Uddin, 32, along with others allegedly assaulted Parvin, and four of her family members condemning them as cattle thieves on Friday.

Police arrested the three suspects and sent them to jail after producing them before a court while UP Chairman Miranur remained absconding, said Habibur Rahman, officer-in-charge of the station.

The victims, Parvin, her daughters Selina Akhter Sheuli and Rozina Akhter and two others Emran, Parvin's son, and one Chuttu-- were tortured in broad daylight and were paraded through villages with their hands tied by ropes.

The incident was initiated by UP chairman Miranur and following the abuse and humiliation, the five were handed to Harbang police outpost, the case statement says.

Not only that, but the perpetrators also filed a case against the five over cattle theft charges with the police station on Friday night, the local sources said.

On Monday, a court in Cox's Bazar granted bail to Parvin and her two daughters, however, sent Emran and Chuttu to jail after rejecting their bail petition.
