He said, there are six cases against Rubel in different police stations so far. He has robbed about 1500 in the last 10 years. He abducted more than half a hundred girls and treated them indecently.
DB Pradhan said that he has received the names of three places so far in the permanent address. He is an ‘inhuman’ person. His strategy was to kidnap school-college and university girls and rob and molest them.
Harun said that the students did not report the matter to the police after being abducted and robbed. Even if they were abducted, gold ornaments, mobiles, bags were lost and they behaved obscenely, they used to hide the matter for fear of public shame. Rubel’s real crime was often covered up.

A few days before this incident, he had picked up another girl in Barisal under the identity of the police. Earlier, Rubel admitted to abducting women in Purbachal, Gazipur, Uttara, Chapainawabganj Faridpur and other areas.
