A case has been filed against two suspects

A madrasa student has been gang-raped in Kagabola union of Moulvibazar. 

Confirming the matter on Friday, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Moulvibazar police station Md Alamgir said: “The girl’s mother has filed a case against two individuals and we are conducting a drive to arrest them.”

The suspects are Jahid Mia, 30—son of Watir Ali—and Rabbi Mia, 28—son of the late Robban Mia— both hailing from the same area of the union.

The victim’s mother said that on June 15, her sixth-grader daughter was staying alone with her grandmother when Jahid and Rabbi broke into the house. They tied the grandmother up inside the house, and raped the girl in the front part of the house.

The girl was gagged, to suppress her screams, and she was left unconscious. She bled the whole night, eventually woke up, and called her mother.

The investigation officer, Sub Inspector Md Imran Hossain said: “The girl has been in Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital since the day of the incident. Primarily, medical tests have shown signs of rape. We are continuing to prioritize this investigation.” 

Locals said that Rabbi’s uncle, Khurshed Mia, along with other influential people of the area are trying to wrap up the incident. Moreover they have threatened the girl’s family to call-off the case.
