A 44-year-old housewife has allegedly been raped by a gang at Shahar Ali Shrine at Gajariyakandi village in Munshiganj Sadar.
After two days into her confinement and torture, locals rescued the victim, a resident of Sureshwar Kalikhola village in Shariatpur district, from there and rushed her to Munshiganj General Hospital around 5pm Thursday.
The housewife suffered from bleeding when she was admitted to the hospital, a doctor at the hospital said.
According to the victim, she along with her two sons had come to attend a congregation at the shrine on Tuesday night.
But authorities of the shrine confined them in a room, accusing them of stealing mobile phones that night, she alleged.
Mijan and his cohorts beat and raped her in the room, she added.
Abul Khair Fakir, officer-in-charge of the police station, said a team of law enforcers had visited the spot.
Necessary legal action will be taken after an investigation into the incident, he said.
