Five girls have allegedly been raped in Narayanganj, Thakurgaon, and Habiganj districts.

In Narayanganj, police arrested three people who were suspected of raping three schoolgirls in three separate incidents in the Fatullah area.

The arrestees are Monir Hossain, 45, Mizanur Rahman, 19, and Tapos Chandra Saha, 40.

Fatullah Model police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Manjur Quader said Monir picked up a Class 1 girl who was playing on the road from the Delpara Towerpar area on October 19, and took her to a chicken farm where he raped her.

Locals rescued the victim after hearing her screams, but Monir managed to escape.

On October 20, a 12-year-old student of Class 7 was raped by neighbour Mizan, who went to victim's house in Katherpul while she was alone.

On October 21, Tapos molested a Class 10 girl after taking her to his home on the second floor of a coaching centre at Dapa Idrakpur.

Police arrested the three suspects in three separate cases filed over the incidents, the OC said.

In Thakurgaon, a student of Class 9 was allegedly raped by Moniram Paul, 24, who is from the Baliadangi upazila of the district on Tuesday.

Baliadangi police station OC ABM Sajedur Rahman said Moniram took the girl to an empty house in the village of Boaldhar and raped her.

The victim was taken to Thakurgaon General Hospital for better treatment, as her injuries caused her to bleed profusely, he said.

Police later arrested Moniram.

In Habiganj, police arrested the imam of a mosque, Manik Miah from Alapur village in Sayestaganj upazila, on Monday afternoon, after he was charged with the rape of a teenage girl.

Anisur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Habiganj Sadar police station, said Manik took the girl to his bedroom by force and violated her there on Sunday night.

Upon hearing the screams of the girl, family members rescued her and took her to Sadar Hospital.

The victim's father Mahram Ali filed a case against the imam, and Manik was sent to jail by the Senior Judicial Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, the OC added.
