The victim has filed rape cases against two individuals

A 15-year-old girl has allegedly been raped and impregnated by her stepfather in Sadullapur, Gaibandha.

The incident came to light as the girl came to Sadullapur police station with her stepfather, Idris Ali, 48, to file a rape case against Masud Mia, 18, with whom the girl had reportedly had a physical relationship.

According to police, Idris Ali alias Chengtu, Member Union Parishad (UP) of Bhatgram Union, married the girl's mother in 2018. After repeatedly raping the girl, she fell pregnant three months ago. Idris made her abort the child and later impregnated her again. To cover up his actions, Idris planned a case against Masud, the reported lover of the girl who was also engaged in raping the girl.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune, Officer-in-Charge of Sadullapur police station, Mostafizur Rahman said: "As the victim came to file the case with her stepfather Idris, their confession seemed suspicious. When we questioned the victim we got some crucial details that led to the discovery that not only Masud, but Idris was also engaged in this rape case."

"Later the girl filed separate cases against both of them."
