A blind girl has been raped in Baliadangi upazila of Thakurgaon.

The incident occurred on February 24.

Police have arrested Rabiul Islam, 20—the man the victim was allegedly in a relationship with—after the victim's brother lodged a case with the Baliadangi police station accusing Rabiul, on Thursday night, confirmed the Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mosabberul Haque.

Rabiul hails from Kariakalonda village under Bhano union in Baliadangi upazila.

The OC said: "On February 24, Rabiul lured the girl to a neighbour's, Pinjira Akter's, house and raped her. When she started bleeding, Pinjira received treatment from a local doctor.

Police are trying to arrest those who helped the rapist, Mosabberul said.
