Staff Reporter :
A female student of Chittagong University (CU) was attacked on her commute to the port city from campus on a moving bus on Thrusday.
The victim, who sued the unidentified driver and helper on Friday, said in a Facebook post that she "managed to escape their clutches" by jumping off.     
The Facebook post which the girl wrote on Thrusday went viral last night - amidst countrywide outrage over the incident of Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
According to the case complaint at Kotwali Police Station, the victim got on a bus around 3:00pm on Thursday from Gate No.1 of the university.
Though all the passengers got off at Riazuddin Bazar, she did not as her destination was the last stoppage at New Market in Chattogram city.
"The driver tried to divert from the route. I told the driver to stop immediately, but he took no heed," the victim said in her Facebook post.
"The conductor rushed to me and gagged me with my scarf. I had my mobile phone in my right hand. I hit him as hard as I possibly could. Maybe I hit his eyes because he let go. I rushed to the door and jumped off from the moving bus," the post read.
She later reached home on a rickshaw and said she is traumatised by the incident.
The victim also lodged verbal complaint with CU Proctor Ali Asgar Chowdhury.The proctor said they will provide all necessary support to bring the accused to book.
Mohammad Mohsin, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kotwali Police Station, said they have already started investigation into the matter.
"Three teams of police are working to arrest the accused", he said, adding that they are trying to obtain CCTV footages to identify the culprits.
Monjurul Alam, President of Chattogram Sarak Paribahan Malik Group said they could not take any steps against the accused as the workers were not a member of their organisation.
