A suspect in a case, filed over the torture of a madrasa teacher and an imam for preventing a child marriage at Hatia upazila in Noakhali on January 29, has been arrested.

Hatia police station Officer-in-Charge Kamruzzaman Shikder said police arrested Abdul Quader, the main accused in the case, from Hatia Bazar area around 10am on Monday.

According to local sources, Maulana Tariqul, teacher of Darul Arqam Ebtedayee Madrasa, and Minhajul, imam of a mosque in Hatia upazila's Purbo Rasulpur area, were beaten up for preventing a child marriage.

Tariqul said he heard the family members of one of his students, a 13-year-old girl, had arranged a programme at their home to marry her off.

He then called the national helpline on 999 and sought help to stop the marriage.

Following advice from the helpline, he contacted the local upazila nirbahi officer (UNO), Mohammad Nur-e-Alam, and stopped the marriage with his help.

A few hours later, some people attacked him while he was going to the market along with Minhajul and some other locals.

At one point, the assailants abducted the teacher and the imam and took them to the student's home.

They tied them to trees and beat them up, he alleged.

The criminals also snatched their mobile phones, cash and some documents.

Some local people later rescued them.

After the incident, Tariqul filed a complaint with Hatia police station, accusing five people, including Abdul Quader, Abdul Zinali, Samir Uddin, Babul and Kamal.
