A teacher has been arrested for allegedly raping at least 30 minor boys in Rajshahi's Motihar, police said on Sunday.

The accused is Md Abdul Wakel, 33, a teacher at Ashraf Memorial Model School, Katakhali, Rajshahi.

Wakel violated the boys and recorded the scenes. Later, he saved them on his mobile phone, pen drive, computer and external hard drive.

A search engine delivered this information to a US-based organization called the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Being a partner of many international organizations, including the IOM, UNODC and NCMEC, the content related to child abuse was sent to the CID.

Based on this, a special team of the CID conducted an operation in the Shyampur Danshmari area under Motihar of Rajshahi and arrested Md Abdul Wakel on Saturday, said Azad Rahman, superintendent of police of the CID's media wing.

During the drive, law enforcement seized a mobile phone, two hard disks and two pen drives, he added.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Wakel lured the children with candies, played the popular PUBG game on his mobile phone and "raped" them at different times.

A case was filed with Paltan model police station under the Pornography Control Act following a complaint lodged by the headmaster of Katakhali’s Ashraf Memorial Model School.
