A seven-year-old girl child has been raped allegedly by a middle-aged neighbour in Gazipur's Tongi upazila.
The victim is being treated at a local hospital.
Meanwhile, the accused Harun Ur Rashid, 45, hailing from Phulpur upazila of Mymensingh, has been on the run since the incident that took place on Wednesday night.
The family of the child lives in a rented house in Auchpara area under the upazila.
Harun, who has been staying in an house adjoining the one rented by the victim's family, tricked the girl into his room luring her with a TV show around 8pm.
At one stage, the girl started screaming loudly, causing the people nearby to come to her rescue.
The culprit, however, managed to flee the scene. The girl's parents filed a case against him on Thursday.
Tongi police station's Officer-in-Charge Firoz Talukder said the victim was sent to Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital the same day and efforts to arrest Harun were underway.
