Kolkata, March 27: A court in West Bengal’s dia district on Friday sent a Bangladeshi tiol, arrested in connection with the gang rape of a nun inside a convent in Raghat, to 14 days police custody. Gopal Sarkar, who was arrested by the Crimil investigation Department of the state police from Habra in North 24 Pargas district on Thursday for allegedly harbouring the assailants who looted the Convent of Jesus and Mary and brutalised the 71-year-old nun, was produced in the court of the additiol chief judicial magistrate, Raghat, during the day. “In our submission we told the court that Sarkar had sheltered those who committed the heinous act before and after the incident. He helped them in committing the crime. He had material gains from the incident,” said the prosecution counsel. “We collected material evidence and produced them before the court. After hearing the arguments, the learned court allowed our prayer for 14 days CID custody,” he said. The CID presented before the court two mobile phones seized from Sarkar and claimed the call records showed that he was in constant communication with the gang of Bangladeshi crimils who had raided the convent.
