Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has strongly condemned gang rape of a young housewife at MC College hostel in Sylhet city.
"Incidents of rape are nothing new during this government. It's the characteristic of Chhatra League which celebrated the century of rape earlier," he said while addressing a press conference in Dhaka on Sunday.
The BNP leader said, "We had never seen in the past so many incidents of rape in Bangladesh. The incidents of rape have increased manifold after the Awami League came to power. It is a matter of great shame that the leaders of a student organisation in an old political party like Awami League get involve in rape incidents."
"We strongly condemn the gangrape in Sylhet MC College hostel and demand immediate arrest of the culprits," he said.
