A court in Rajbari district on 2 September 2020 sentenced three accused to death in a gang rape case filed by a female doctor.
Judge Sharmin Nigar of Woman and Child Repression Prevention Tribunal of Rajbari delivered the judgement early 2 September afternoon.

The three convicts were present at the court during the pronouncement of judgement.
It may be mentioned that the female doctor reached Goalundo crossing on her way to Gopalganj from Dhaka at night on 23 February 2018. There she was waiting for Faridpur-bound bus.
At that time, Rana, Hannan and Mamun told her of taking to her destination. Accordingly, they requested her to get into their battery-driven easybike.

The culprits raped the female doctor one after another forcibly. Later, they brought four others calling them on their mobile phones. They also gangraped the woman one after another.
