Online desk : A tribunal in Dhaka on Wednesday framed charges against Md Mojnu, the lone accused in a case filed over rape of a Dhaka University student in city’s Kurmitola.

After framing charges, Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-7 Judge Begum Mosammat Quamrunnahar fixed September 9 for recording deposition of witnesses.

During the hearing, Mojnu was produced before the virtual court through videoconferencing from Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj.

Earlier on March 16, the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) submitted the chargesheet before the same court against Mojnu.

The court on August 16 accepted the chargesheet.

The DU student boarded a Dhaka University bus at about 5:30pm on January 5 last. She got down from the bus at about 7:00pm at Kurmitola bus stand and was heading toward a friend’s house in a nearby area at that night.

Soon after she got down from the university bus, someone grabbed her from behind, gagged her and took her to an isolated place nearby where she was raped and beaten. At one stage, she fell unconscious.

After regaining consciousness, she found herself at an isolated place. Later, she went to Dhaka Medical College Hospital hiring a CNG-run auto-rickshaw.

The following day, the victim’s father lodged a case with Cantonment Police Station accusing an unidentified person. Rapid Action Battalion arrested Mojnu on January 8 and, later, handed him over to Cantonment police.
