A woman was raped by her former husband and his three friends in Kamalnagar upazila of Lakshmipur on Friday night.
The victim alleged that her husband and his friends kidnapped her from Torabganj Bazar area of Kamalnagar upazila while she was travelling to her brother's place in an auto-rickshaw on Friday night. They locked her into a deserted house and raped her before cutting her lock.
Her family members took her to a hospital around 4:00pm on Saturday. She then underwent some medical tests, said Anwar Hossain, a physician at the hospital.
The 24-year-old victim told Prothom Alo that they had been married for 10 years before she divorced him six months back after years of torture over dowry.
The man could not take her decision to part ways, and was threatening her to teach a lesson, she alleged.
They had two children, a girl of eight and a boy of six years, she added.
Akul Chnadra Bishwas, officer-in-charge of Kamalnagar police station, said they were trying to catch the four.
