Saiful, Babu, and another accused Harun entered the house of the victim, aged around 18, at Doalia village around 10:30pm on Thursday.
They kept all inmates hostage in a room and gang raped the housewife after taking her to another room, police said quoting family members.
Before leaving the house, the criminals looted gold ornaments worth around Tk 40,000 and vandalized furniture, the victim's family also alleged, said OC Firoz.
Citing the family, police said the trio had long been at loggerhead with the victim's husband over fish farming. As a sequel, they threatened the family on occasions.
The victim's husband, however, filed a case with the police station concerned in this connection.
Meanwhile, the victim was sent to Noakhali General Hospital for medical test, the OC added.
