Accused teenager has been on the run since the incident

A 15-year-old has allegedly raped a fourth grader boy aged nine in Kurigram’s Fulbari upazila.

The incident took place in the afternoon on Friday in Bidyabagish village under Sadar union of the upazila.

Police rescued the rape survivor and admitted him to a local hospital.

Confirming the matter, Fulbari police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rajib Kumar Roy said the accused teenager had been on the run since the incident.

According to police and locals, a teenaged tenth-grader of the area called a fourth-grader of Bidyabagish Government Primary School to his house on the pretext of watching television on Friday afternoon.

At one stage, the 15-year-old closed the door of the room, put his hand over the fourth-grader’s mouth and raped him. When the child somehow managed to remove the accused's hand from his mouth and shout, the teenager immediately fled the scene.

The injured child returned home and told his mother about the incident. 

Efforts were made throughout the day to resolve the issue locally.

Later on Saturday afternoon, Fulbari police rescued the child and admitted him to the upazila health complex.

Despite several attempts, Dhaka Tribune was unable to reach Fulbari Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Shamsunnahar over the phone.

Nevertheless, OC Rajib, quoting doctors, said initially the child was found to have signs of rape. “He has been referred to Kurigram General Hospital for better treatment.”

“The child’s father is preparing to file a case in this connection. Police are still trying to catch the accused teenager,” the police official added.
