The deceased, Nupur, 14, was a ninth grader of the area’s RKK Janata High School
A ninth grader was allegedly abducted, raped and killed in Poddarpara, of the district’s Lohagara upazila.
The deceased, Nupur, 14, was a ninth grader of the area’s RKK Janata High School.
Police recovered her body from Lohagara Health Complex on Sunday evening.
The girl’s family alleged she was abducted on May 26 and later killed in June 2 after almost a week of confinement inside a rented house in that area.
Nupur’s uncles Bacchu Mia and Abdul Karim said: “We found Nupur’s dead body seven days after her abduction. She was abducted by miscreants after she left home for tuition on May 26.”
They accused Rabiul Islam Rubel, 25 of Brakkhandanga and Azad Sarder, 35 of Jalalsi village, of abducting their niece on her way home from tuition.
They suspect the two of taking her to a rented house, raping her repeatedly and killing her, while also suspecting the house owner, Mini, of being involved in the crimes.
Officer-in-charge of Lohagora police station Mokarrom Hossain said: “On primary investigation it looks like a suicide. We suggested Nupur’s family to file for a pre-meditated murder case against the accused. We will work on the incident after her family files a case.”
Vice Chairman of Lohagora Upazila Parishad Farhana Yasmin Eti said Mini has a notorious reputation in the area, and her involvement may not be surprising.
The house owner Mini denied all accusations and said Nupur rented her house a week ago, and that she had taken her to the health complex after she got sick on Sunday evening.
