Police arrested the victim's father on Tuesday night
A man had allegedly been raping a teenage girl for days with the help of her father in Dhaka's Kamrangirchar area.
Police, meanwhile, arrested the victim's father, Md Liton, 36, on Tuesday night and are conducting drives to apprehend the rape suspect, Md Abul, 35, a resident of Kamrangirchar.
The rape survivor has been admitted to the One-stop Crisis Centre at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) around 1am on Wednesday.
Kamrangirchar police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Sheikh Morshed Ali said the victim, 13, was staying with his father as her mother is an expatriate.
Her father worked in a poultry shop and took Tk6,000 loan from its owner Abul some one year ago, he said.
As he failed to repay the loan, Abul proposed him to convince her daughter for sexual relationship.
At one stage, the girl was forced to compromise by her father and Abul had been raping her for days, the police official said.
On Monday, seeking help, the victim disclosed the matter to one of her neighbours.
The neighbor called police by 999 on Tuesday when the law enforcement rescued the girl and arrested her father, the SI said.
"Abul has gone into hiding and we are trying to arrest him," he added.
A case was filed in this connection.
