A man has been arrested from Gazipur's Shreepur upazila on a charge of attempted rape of his five-year-old granddaughter. Shreepur police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Nazmul Shakib said they arrested Abul Kashem, 50, from his residence at MC Bazar under Telihati union on Sunday night. Kashem was arrested in a case filed by his daughter on the same day, added the SI. He allegedly tried to rape his granddaughter while she was asleep on his bed last Wednesday night, according to the complainant. The complainant said her parents lived in a rented house next to her home. Her five-year-old girl used to sleep with her grandparents quite often. The elderly couple operated a grocery store from their house. Around 10:30pm on Wednesday, Kashem entered the bedroom from the storefront. The five-year-old was asleep on the bed at the time. Kashem told his wife to go to the store and laid down next to his granddaughter to rest. Sometime later, Kashem's wife heard her granddaughter scream and rushed inside. Kashem instantly suggested that their granddaughter might be crying because of a nightmare. As the girl would not stop crying, she was taken to her mother. The girl later disclosed to her mother that her grandfather had pulled down her bloomers in her sleep and covered her mouth with his hand when she was began to cry out. The girl's father, who was informed about the incident later, discussed the matter with a group of elders of the locality on Sunday afternoon. The man was advised to keep calm over the incident. However, the mother broke the silence and filed a complaint after some hours. Law enforcement officials have recorded the victim's statement under Section 22 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).
