Three of the victims were killed after rape

At least 41 children have been raped and three others subjected to attempted rape between May 1 and 8, says a rights group.

Manusher Jonno Foundation (MJF) in a statement on Thursday said that 37 of the rape victims were girls and four were boys, reports Bangla Tribune.

Three of the victims were also killed after rape, said the statement, adding that the findings were complied based on news reports of six national dailies.

The Dhaka-based MJF expressed grave concern over the rise in child rape incidents across Bangladesh.

Urging the government to take punitive measures to prevent violence and torture against children, the rights body said incidents of violence against women and children have gone to an intolerable situation due to the culture of impunity.

MJF also expressed their concern and offered condolence over the death of Shahinoor Akhter Tania, a nurse who was killed after being gang raped in Kishoreganj recently.

The rights group also said earlier that at least 271 children were killed or died after they were raped or subjected to sexual and physical abuse in Bangladesh last year.

Previously, Bangladesh Shishu Adhikar Forum (BSAF) said that a total of 279 children were raped around the nation between January and April this year.

Child rape has increased by 20% in Bangladesh compared to 2018, according to a BSAF press release. It also said that 234 children were raped in the first four months of last year as well.
