A boy has been arrested over the rape of a child in Gopalganj.

The arrested is madrasa student Arthin Morlokey, 12, who has previously been convicted of raping a four-year-old child.

Muksudpur police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mostafa Kamal Pasha confirmed the matter.

The victim's mother said, "On Wednesday, Arthin lured my daughter to him with the promise that she would get the chance to ride a bicycle. Then, he raped her in a jute field near my house. Hearing her screams, I ran to her, while the perpetrator ran away."

I admitted her to Madaripur Sadar Hospital, she added.

A local leader, Firoz Mollik, said, "A lot of people are trying to suppress the matter. The boy has done such incidents before."

The OC said, "He has been arrested. He has been sent to jail through a court decision. A case has been filed."
