An imam and a young girl have been brutally tortured by a group of youths in Meherpur’s Gangni upazila over allegations that they were involved in an illicit relationship.

Nazmul Hossain, the imam of a mosque at Kashmahal village in Tentulbaria union, alleged that a group of local youths, including Mukaddes Ali, Ripon Hossain, Badal Hossain, Mominul Haque and Tanzil Hossain, had forcefully picked him up on Sunday afternoon from a road near the house of his student Amli Khatun in Mathurapur village.

Nazmul was returning home after giving Qur’an lessons to his student, but the hoodlums stopped him and also called up the student’s niece Beli Khatun by alleging that he was involved in an illicit relationship with the girl.

The youths tied down both the imam and the young girl with a tree and beat them up mercilessly.

Talking to the Dhaka Tribune, Ripon Hossain, one of the aggressors, claimed that they had meted out the punishment because the imam and the girl was found to be maintaining an illicit relationship.

Gangni police station Officer-in-Charge Anwar Hossain said he had heard of the incident about yet to receive any formal complaint from any one.
