The boy recently stopped attending classes at the madrasa. Asked about it, he told his father about being raped by the principal.

“The father has filed a case. We will produce the accused before a court on Thursday,” Officer-in-Charge Hillol Roy said.

Earlier, locals sat in a meeting at the municipal market being informed about the rape on Tuesday night. Enraged at this, some students of the madrasa vandalized the office of the former municipal administrator Tofazzal Hossain.
