After the girl was raped, she was admitted to hospital, from where she was reportedly abducted

Police on Saturday located a rape survivor at her relative’s residence, who was earlier reportedly abducted from a hospital.   

The fourth-grader was reportedly abducted from Gopalganj General Hospital on Friday, when she was receiving medical attention there.  

The girl was a student at Hatikata Sheikh Moni Gyanendra Government Primary School in Sadar upazila.

The minor said she was repeatedly raped since November last year, by her private tutor, Manoj Kumar Biswas. 

Principal Suresh Chandra Dutta filed a case against five men, including Manoj and his associate Shahjahan Sheikh, on Friday.

The child was abducted from the hospital to wipe out rape evidence, the principal said.

Gopalganj Sadar police station Sub-Inspector, Md Bakul Hossain, said: “The child was found at her relative’s house with her family contrary to allegations of abduction.” 

Police sent the girl back to Gopalganj General Hospital to receive further treatment, he added.

Police are working on arresting the suspects accused in the case, he also added.
