Drives on to hunt down molesters of college girl: Home Minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Thursday said drives are underway to arrest those who sexually harassed a college girl at Banglamotor intersection reportedly on way to an Awami League at the Suhrawardy Udyan on Wednesday.

"We've received the video footage of the incident. Drives are on to arrest the offenders. They'll be brought to justice no matter what political party they belong to. No one will be spared," he said.

The minister was talking to reporters after attending a programme at the Cirdap Auditorium.

In small processions, people from across the city joined the ruling party rally at the Suhrawardy Udyan orgainised on Wednesday marking the historic March 7.

A group of people from a procession molested a college girl at Banglamotor intersection while many took still and video footages of the incident in their mobile phones.

Later, the victim posted a status on his Facebook account describing the trauma she underwent.

The post reads, "Could not catch a bus even after waiting for one hour at Shantinagar intersection. Went to Banglamotor on foot only to find myself amid a procession.Around 15-20 people surrounded me...many were trying to take video clips and still photos of a girl in a college uniform being harassed. The button of my uniform tore off and the scarf was removed. They slapped me... my two hands couldn't save myself from so many hands. A police officer rescued me and helped me find a bus....there's no bruise in the body except severe pain. I'm mentally horrified but physically fit. I won't stay in the country of these pigs. I won't stay in the country of those who molest a girl shouting 'Joy Bangla'. Won't stay. Wont' stay...."UNB.
