In a strange twist, a teenage girl, allegedly raped and murdered, has been found alive
A revision has been filed with the High Court that challenges the accuracy, legality and rationality of proceedings of an abduction case filed in Narayanganj Sadar Model police station.
Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Mohammad Shishir Monir filed the revision on Tuesday on behalf of five other Supreme Court lawyers -- Md Asad Uddin, Md Zobaidur Rahman, Md Ashraful Islam, Md Al Reza Amir and Md Misbah Uddin.
The revision also seeks directives from the High Court on concerned offices to summon the documents of the case so that they may be examined., advocate Shishir confirmed Dhaka Tribune.
Following a case filed in Narayanganj Sadar Model police station for the abduction of a teenage girl, police arrested three suspects and sent them to jail.
The trio gave confessional statements that they dumped the teenage girl's dead body in the Shitalakha river after raping and murdering her.
However, the girl’s safe return home on August 23 immediately invalidated the confessional statements and raised questions about how the false confessions of rape and murder were obtained.
The girl, 15, is currently with her family, said Narayanganj Sadar police.

The magistrate, the superintendent of police, the officers in charge of Narayanganj Sadar Model police station, the investigation officer of the case, plaintiff Jahangir Hossain (father of abducted teen girl) and the three accused -- Abdullah, Rakib and Khalil --- were all made respondents to the revision.
According to media reports, on August 23, Ikbal Pandit, a man having an affair with the girl called her family and informed them that she was alive and living with him. Ikbal also asked for some money from the girl’s parents to pay rent. He was arrested shortly after. The court recorded the statement from Jisa Moni on August 24, sending Ikbal to jail.
The girl went missing on July 4.
Following the arrests of Abdullah, Rakib and Khalil in connection to her disappearance, Narayanganj Sadar Model police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Shamim Al Mamun said that she was murdered and her body was dumped into the Shitalakshya River.
"We located Rakib (autorickshaw driver) after finding his number from the call list on the girl's mother’s phone. Abdullah used to contact the girl through Rakib's phone," he said.
“On the afternoon of July 4, the schoolgirl and Abdullah went on a tour in Rakib's auto-rickshaw to different parts of Bandar upazila. In the evening they hired a boat from the number five ghat of the dock and the girl was raped on the vessel by Abdullah and the boatman Khalilur.”
“When the girl threatened the men that she would make a complaint regarding her rape, Abdullah and Khalilur strangled her to death and dumped her body in the Shitalakshya river around 9pm,” added the SI.
