Rubel Mia, the primary suspect in the assault on women activists of Hezbut Tawheed in Raipura, Narsingdi, has been arrested. Police apprehended him during a raid at Hasnabad Market in the upazila around 7 pm on Friday. . On June 18, the second day of Eid, Hezbut Tawheed activists Zobaida Khatun, Ayesha Akhter Khadija, and Shantana Akhter Nipa were selling newspapers at Hasnabad Bazaar in Raipura. During the sale, Rubel Mia, along with at least 10-12 others, attacked them in front of Goljar Member's sweet shop, snatching and tearing up their newspapers. They verbally abused the women with profanities and attempted to abduct them in a microbus. When the victims resisted, they were beaten, kicked, punched, and severely hit on the head. . Following the incident, Zobaida Khatun's husband, Moksed Ali, filed a case at Raipura Police Station the same day. A police team, led by the investigating officer SI Aminul Islam, conducted a raid and arrested Rubel. . After the arrest, relatives of the accused made various attempts throughout Friday to secure his release from the police station and police outpost, creating a dramatic situation. However, due to the police's unwavering stance, their efforts were unsuccessful. . Raipura police stated on Saturday that the process of sending the accused to jail is underway. They also mentioned that efforts to arrest the other accused are ongoing. . In this regard, Moksed Ali, the plaintiff, said that if the police administration maintains a strong position in apprehending criminals, no defendant in this case will be able to escape. The arrest of the accused sends a strong message to the terrorists, indicating that they cannot act with impunity in this country.
