Police arrested three people on Thursday in a case filed for the death of a woman who reportedly committed suicide after being raped in Kakonhat Municipality area of Godagari upazila, Rajshahi.

The arrestees identified as Lutfor Rahman Biswas, councilor of ward no 3 under Kakonhat municipality, Akbar Ali, and Merazul Islam. All the accused were sent to jail following a court order on Thursday afternoon.  

The deceased was identified as Shakhina Begum, 35, a resident of Ghiapukur Mohalla under the municipality.

According to police sources, one Mofijul raped the mother of two by entering into her room at Ghiapukur Mohalla under the municipality on Wednesday night. Hearing the woman screaming, neighbor Akbar Ali and Merazul Islam went to the scene and apprehended Mofijul. They later took Mofijul to councilor Lutfor Rahman Biswas. But the councilor released the rapist Mofizul instead of handing him over to police.

Learning of the incident, Shakhina Begum committed suicide that night. Police recovered the dead body on Thursday morning. 

Regarding the matter, Godagari’s Kakonhat Police Investigation Centre In-Charge Abdul Latif said: “The woman was raped. Her dead body was sent to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital for autopsy on Thursday.”

“The arrestees released the rapist Mofijul instead of handing over him to police. For this reason, a case was filed against them including rapist Mofijul. We are trying to arrest prime accused Mofijul.”

The arrested were sent to jail following a court order on Thursday afternoon, the police official added.

Meanwhile, when contacted Kakonhat Municipilty Mayor Abdul Majid confirmed the incident of the rape and declined to make any further comment about the matter.
