Locals have handed the father over to police after beating him up

A minor girl was allegedly raped by her father in Jalkuri Pashchimpara area of Siddhirganj upazila in Narayagnaj on Monday.

The 11-year-old victim was initially taken to Narayanganj 300-Bed Hospital.

She was, however, shifted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) as her condition deteriorated early Tuesday, police said.

Locals beat up the father and handed him over to police after learning about the alleged rape.

The victim is scheduled to undergo an operation at DMCH.
