Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Thursday assured that the offenders involved in the rape of two university students in a Banani hotel recently will be brought to justice – no matter who they are, reports UNB.
After inaugurating a Women’s Holiday Market of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) at the Kitchen Market in Mahakhali, the minister said that the investigation was underway over the incident.
Those found to have assisted in or associated with the matter will also have to face justice, he said, adding “no matter which influential class he belongs to.”
Law enforcers, the minister said, are aware of the insincerity of the Raintree Hotel management.
“The wheels of development will fall apart if we fail to ensure security of businessmen and women in the country. Such initiatives like women’s market would help women to march ahead”, the minister said.
The organisation “For the Women, By the Women” arranged the programme in association with DNCC with mayor Annisul Huq presiding over it.
The girls were raped after being confined to two rooms of the Raintree Hotel in Banani at gunpoint on March 28. A case was filed on May 6.
