Police say Hridoy, 30, raped three underage girls and attempted to rape another
Police on Monday arrested a man from Pratagi Sarani in Dhaka for reportedly raping three underage girls.
The arrestee, Hridoy, 30, was apprehended Monday afternoon, said Additional Deputy Commissioner [ADC] Syed Mamun Mostofa of DMP’s Badda zone.
Hridoy rented out his apartment to five girls aged between 13 and 17, he said quoting the case statement.
The victims were going through family problems and wanted to live on their own, said the ADC.
“They met Hridoy on Facebook. He [Hridoy] told them that his house in Kuril was up for rent,” said ADC Syed Mamun Mostofa.
The girls rented the house together.
“Of the five, Hridoy raped three, and tried to rape another but failed,” he said, adding: “When the incident was recurring, we received complaints and proceeded to rescue all the girls.”
Subsequently, Hridoy was sued on Sunday and the girls gave statements under section 22 of Code of Criminal Procedure.
Hridoy had been in hiding following the raid but he was later caught.
