Three young boys, held in a case filed over gang-raping a girl at Kamrangirchar in Dhaka, have confessed to their guilt before a Dhaka court.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Millat Hossain recorded the confessional statements of Hasan, Shifat and Sabuz, the alleged rapists, on Saturday.
Earlier, police arrested five people, including a 14-year-old girl who apparently helped four boys rape the victim – her friend, in this connection. The four alleged rapists are Hasan, Sifat, Sabuj and Rony, all aged at least 18 years.
Rony and the alleged aide of the rapists denied their involvement in the incident. The court placed Rony on a seven-day remand.
Earlier, police said four people, with the help of a female friend of the victim, took the girl to the first floor of a two-storey building under construction in Kamrangirchar's Rasulpur area on Thursday last. They gang-raped her for about one-and-a-half hours there.
The victim was later admitted to the One Stop Crisis Centre of Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
