Two persons were held in Satkhira on Tuesday on charge of gang-raping a seventh grader schoolgirl and uploading the video on the internet.
Members of Rapid Action Battalion detained Akbar Ali Gazi, 38, and Hossain Morol, 18, inhabitants of Tala upazila, from Palashpole area of Satkhira town in this connection.
Lt BNM Mahmudur Rahman, acting commander of RAB-6 camp of Satkhira, said this at a press conference.
Quoting victim's family members, the RAB official said Hossain and his accomplice Akbar Gazi took the girl to a residential hotel near the bus terminal in Satkhira town and raped her. Akber filmed the act on his tab and threatened to upload the video clip in social media if she disclosed the incident.
Tipped off, a team of RAB-6 rescued the victim from the hotel room and detained the duo with the tab.
"The process of filing case against the detainees is underway," said the RAB commander.
