Law enforcers have arrested a youth for reportedly raping a Sri Lankan girl, who is an MBBS student of University of Science and Technology Chittagong (USTC), in the port city on Sunday.

Md Arif, 26, a sales executive of Khulshi Mart, a commercial establishment in Khulshi area of the city, was arrested yesterday and sent to jail today, our Chittagong staff correspondent reports quoting police.

The victim filed a rape case against Arif with Khulshi Police Station on Monday stating that Arif raped her at a hotel in Khulshi area on Sunday night, said Sub-Inspector Rupak Kanti Chowdhury, the investigation officer of the case.

According to the case statement, Arif, who hails from Panchagarh, got introduced to the girl over the phone and they started chatting from June 11.

On Sunday night, Arif called her at a hotel adjacent to her hostel. As she went to meet him, Arif “raped” her there, the case statement reads.

Police arrested Arif on Monday afternoon, hours into the victim filed the case, said the SI.

Today, the law enforcers produced the arrestee before a court in Chittagong and the court sent him to jail, he said, adding, “We are investigating the incident.”(The Daily Star)

    She went to meet him alone in his room? Sounds like a false allegation. And why does it matter? It is not as if Sinhala women are virgins on their wedding night. I'll be sympathetic if it was a Muslim or Tamil girl.

    Don't jump to conclusions. It is only an allegation. This person clearly wasn't a stranger to this girl since she went to his room alone at night. With the right lawyers this young man should have a reasonable chance in court.

    If he invited her to a bedroom in a hotel and she went to that, then to a certain extent this girl is also at fault.

    GMOA is partially to be blamed for this... why do our kids need to go and study medicine in countries like Bangladesh ? Sri Lanka is known to have a high standard in education but due to politics kids are forced to go overseas and qualify at lower standard institutions... not forgetting about 5 billion rupees of forex is sent out to fund this... We shuld be a net importer of students from other countries like we do in our tourism industy... not an exporter.. we should not have only SAITM but 10 others and build a reportation so kids from other countries look forward to come here and learn.. not the other way round... GMOA doctors learm from our TAX money and finally screw our own country.... so sad..

    For Heavens sake, how my times have you gone alone to meet somebody? Why can't women have the same freedom?

    Justica, don't jump to conclusion. There may be more to this story and let us wait for the outcome of the investigation.
