Police have found inappropriate images of the rape incident on Mozammel's phone

Police arrested an Imam over a case filed for raping a schoolgirl in Chandpur.

The accused Mozammel Haque was produced before a Chandpur court on Monday noon.  His bail request was denied, and he was sent to jail.

Sources confirmed, Mozzammel, ex-imam of the Debpur Jam-e Mosque in the Sadar upazila was on the run for five months after he raped the girl on November 17.

Md Alamgir Hossain Rony, OC of Haziganj police station, said: "Mozammel betrayed the trust of the eight-year-old schoolgirl and her family with promises of teaching the girl English.

"On November 17 he brought the girl to a flat and raped her. Five months later the girl's mother identified Mozammel in a market and handed him over to the police with the help of locals."

Police have found inappropriate images of the rape incident in Mozammel's phone, added OC Alamgir.
