The accused rapists have been absconding following the incident

A five-year-old child has allegedly been gang-raped by two teenage boys in Debiganj upazila of Panchagarh.

The incident occurred in Hakimpur Zendapara area of the upazila on Sunday evening.

The victim is currently undergoing treatment at Debiganj Upazila Health Complex while the alleged teenaged rapists—Milon, 16, son of Hossain Ali; and Akash, 13, son of Momin of the same area—are absconding.  

According to police and sources from the victim’s family, the teenage boys raped the child when she was home alone. Later, when her mother returned home, she found the girl lying on the floor, unconscious. After regaining consciousness, the girl told her parents about the rape, accusing Milon and Akash of having committed it.

The victim’s mother said: “Following the incident, my daughter fell sick, at night. We admitted her to Debiganj upazila Health Complex early on Monday.”

She also demanded befitting punishment for the rapists.

Debiganj Upazila Health Complex Centre Resident Medical Officer (RMO) Dr Abu Sayem said: “The child’s guardians have brought forward rape allegations and we have admitted the child here with that understanding. She is undergoing treatment and will be sent to Panchagarh for further medical examination.” 

Debiganj Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rabiul Hasan Sarkar said police were sent to the spot to investigate the matter.
