A 17-year-old girl has been raped by her boyfriend and his friend at a village in Haldia union under Barguna’s Amtali upazila.

The girl was raped multiple times by the two at a paddy field beside the house of the boyfriend, Jewel Mridha, around 10pm on Sunday night.

Based on a complaint, police on Monday detained both Mridha, 22, and his friend Kausar Molla, 18, said Amtali police Inspector Ranajit Kumar Sarkar. Mridha is also married and a father of one.

Kausar had also kept the girl confined overnight at his house and released her the next morning.

The duo, who was detained first by locals and handed over to police on Monday, was also presented before a court on Tuesday after being shown arrested in a rape case. The court sent them to jail.

Inspector Sarkar also said that the rape survivor, who locals rescued after Kausar let her go, was taken into protective custody Monday and sent to a state-run hospital in Barguna for medical tests and treatment on Tuesday.
