Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) Vice-President Nurul Haque Nur and five others, who were earlier sued in a rape case, have been sued again.
The female student of the University of Dhaka's Islamic Studies department, who filed the rape case against the six on Sunday, sued them again on Monday, bringing three more allegations.
The new case was filed at Kotwali Police Station on kidnap, rape, and abetment to rape charges under the Digital Security Act, and Women and Children Repression Act, said Saiful Alam Muzahid, assistant commissioner of Kotwali zone.
A Dhaka court on Tuesday set October 13 to submit the probe report on the new case.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Mahmuda Akter passed the order after receiving the case statement (First Information Report). She also ordered Kotwali Police Station Inspector Nur Alam to investigate the case and submit a report within October 13.
Earlier, a rape case was filed at Lalbagh Police Station against Nur and five others.
The five other accused are Bangladesh Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokkhon Parishad Convener Hassan Al Mamun, 28; joint conveners Nazmul Hassan Shohag, 28, and Md Saiful Islam, 28; Vice-President Md Nazmul Huda, 25, and a student of the University of Dhaka named Md Abdullah Hill Baki, 23.
On Monday night, police detained Nur and six others, claiming that the accused had vandalised police vehicles, and policemen had been attacked by protesters of Bangladesh Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokkhon Parishad.
Hours after the detention, police took Nur to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. At midnight, he was released from the Detective Branch office at Mintoo Road.
Nur earlier claimed in a Facebook live video that he had met the plaintiff only on one day and also denied the rape allegation.
However, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Tuesday said legal action would be taken against Nur for rape charges.
Responding to a question by reporters at the Police Staff College in Mirpur, he said, "A case has already been filed against him, and police have investigated it. We know everything about it."
"Police are investigating the case according to the law, and action will be taken as per the law," he added.
Meanwhile, local leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League's Tangail unit reportedly attacked a human chain formed by Bangladesh Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokkhon Parishad in the district on Tuesday.
The incident took place before the Tangail Press Club at around 1pm when the human chain was formed to condemn the cases filed against Nur and others in Dhaka.
