A five-year-old girl was sexually abused, allegedly by her neighbour, in Khilgaon, Dhaka on Thursday.
The victim was admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital on Friday afternoon.
The victim's family alleged that a rickshaw-puller named Monir, 30, had found the girl alone at home on Thursday afternoon, since her father was at work and her mother had gone to a nearby market, and had attacked her.
When she returned home, the girl's mother noticed that the door of their house had been locked from inside.
According to police, the mother immediately called out to her neighbours who then caught Monir when he tried to flee the scene and beat him.
They then handed Monir over to the officers at Khilgaon police station.
As of 9:30pm on Friday, the process for filing a case on this matter was underway.
