A housewife has allegedly been raped by two young men at West Jharakhali village in Taltali upazila of Barguna district.

Barguna Sadar Police Station officer in-charge SM Masuduzzaman confirmed the matter.

Quoting locals, the OC said the victim's two neighbours-- Arif Khan, 23, and Nurul Haque-- entered her house on Sunday afternoon when she alongwith her two-and-a-half-year-old child was inside and violated her.

Hearing the victim's cry for help, neighbours rushed in and rescued the woman. But the alleged rapists managed to flee.

She was admitted to Barguna General Hospital on the same night, the OC added.  

Nihar Ranjan Baidya, the resident medical officer of the hospital, said they initially found evidence of rape of the woman, but it will take time to get final report.
