Police arrested a CNG auto-rickshaw driver for raping a third-grader at Basantapur Bazar in Noahkhali’s Senbagh upazila.
The rapist, Razon, 25, son of Shafiqullah of Basantapur village, was produced before a court which sent him to jail on Sunday, said officer-in-charge of Senbagh Police Station Abdul Alim.
A case was also filed with the police station over the incident.
According to the case statement, the victim was returning home from her school on Saturday when her neighbour Razon picked her up into the auto, saying he would drop her at her home.
He, however, took the girl to a garage at Basantapur Bazar around 2:30pm and violated her there.
After hearing the victim's screams, locals rushed in and caught Razon red-handed and handed him over to police. But, his accomplices snatched him from police.
Meanwhile, police arrested the auto driver again from the bazaar area around 9pm.
The minor was taken to Sadar Hospital, said assistant sub-inspector of Senbagh Police Station Gopal Sutradhar.
