On the day following the Noakhali gang-rape on September 2, the Noakhali woman had gone to a member of Eklashpur Union Parishad seeking his help in taking the matter to the police, but to no avail.
This is what the survivor told our correspondent, yesterday morning, in an interview held inside the Begumganj Police Station.
“I went to the member and told him that I am poor and I do not have the power to go to the police myself and asked him to investigate the matter and seek justice on my behalf. I told him what the men did to me,” she said.
