Desk Report: Driver Nuruzzaman Nuru has reportedly confessed before a court in Kishoreganj to his involvement in the killing of nurse Shahinoor Akhter Tania after ‘gang-rape’ in his moving bus in Bajitpur upazila.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Al Mamun recoded the confessional statement of Nuruzzaman under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure on Sunday.

Physicians found the evidence of gang-rape after conducting autopsy on the body of the nurse on May 8.

Bus driver Nuruzzaman, his assistant Lalan Mia, Rafiqul Islam, Khokon Mia and Bakul Mia were put on an eight-day remand each.

Tania's father filed the case with Bazitpur Police Station against five people.

As per the case statement, the victim boarded a bus of 'Swarnalata Paribahan' from Mohakhali bus stand on Monday on her way home.

When the bus reached Ujanpur in Katiadi, other passengers except Tania got down from the bus around 9:30pm.
