2 held over raping 3rd grader in Magura

Two people were arrested over raping a female student of class III in Salikha upazila of Magura district.

The arrestees were Imdadul Haque, neighbour of the rape survivor and Rezaul Munshi, a local matabbar (an influential person).

The arrestees were produced before court on Saturday, said Tarakanath Biswash, Officer-in-Charge of Salikha police station.

A case has been filed in this regard following a complaint lodged by the girl’s mother, said the OC.

On April 20, Imdadul Haque allegedly called the girl into his house when his wife went out and raped her.

Later he destroyed the evidence of the crime and threatened the girl’s family not to file any case in this regard with the help of Rezaul Munshi.

The accused were arrested after the girl’s mother managed to file a complaint at Salikha police station against them on May 5, said OC Tarakanath Biswash.
