Staff Reporter  :
Police arrested another suspect in connection with the gang-rape of a woman in the Noakhali's Subarnachar on December 30.
Accused Henchu Majhi, 29, was arrested from Daudkandi in Cumilla on Friday morning, said Md Abul Khair, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of the Detective Branch of district police.   
He hails from Madhyambagya village of Charjubli Union in Noakhali's Subornachar Upazila.
So far 11 suspects have been arrested, the Police official said.
Henchu's involvement in the gang-rape has been proven in investigation and his confessional statement even though he was  not named in the case, the OC said.
 "Henchu fled the village after the incident and began working as bus driver's assistant on the Dhaka-Chattogram route. After receiving a tip-off, detectives arrested him in a raid," said Abul Khair.  
Police will produce Henchu in a court with remand prayer in custody, he added.  
The victim, mother of four children said that a gang of 10-12 men attacked her on December 30.
The attackers broke into their house and clubbed her husband and tied him and his school-going daughter inside the house. The victim was dragged outside where she was repeatedly raped and beaten severely.
The victim said the attackers were 'accomplices' of Ruhul Amin, then publicity secretary of the Subornachar wing of the Awami League. Amin has since been arrested and expelled from the ruling party.
She had earlier complained to Deputy Inspector General of Police Khandaker Golam, who was visiting her at Noakhali Sadar Hospital on January 2, about Ruhul Amin who was not recorded as a suspect in the case with the Char Jabbar Police.
The following night Ruhul was arrested while he was hiding at a poultry farm of Noakhali Sadar Upazila.
Medical tests have confirmed the assault on the victim.
Of those arrested, Ruhul Amin, Hasan Ali Bulu, Badshah Alam Basu, Jasim Uddin, Md Sohel, Swapan, Bechu and Murad have been taken in for five days of remand in police custody.
