Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) arrested 28 ‘homosexual’ youths from a community centre in Keraniganj on Friday.
In the face of the RAB interrogation, the arrestees disclosed that they have long been involved in homosexual activities.
They used the community centre ‘Chhayaneer’ located at Antibazar of Keraniganj, as a hangout for homosexual activities, said Rab-10 Commander Jahangir Hossain Matubbor.
The arrestees are aged between 20 and 22. Most of them are students.
“They’ve told us they took part in homosexual activities. We have recovered drugs, condoms and lubricants from their possession,” he said.
Owner of the community centre received Tk 10,000 for every gathering there, RAB said.
