Police arrested the accused, Sobuj Islam, 24

Police have arrested a man accused of raping a sixth-grade madrasa student in Dinajpur.

According to Birampur police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Maniruzzaman, Sobuj Islam, a 24-year-old from Jotbani union in Birampur upazila, was accused of luring a teenage madrasa student who lived next door to his home and raping her on Monday.

The girl’s mother heard her daughter's cries and ran to Sobuj's house. Seeing her appear, the accused fled the scene.

On Tuesday, Jotbani UP Chairman Abdur Razzak tried to arbitrate the issue but the girl’s family refused to do so and filed a rape case against Sobuj with Birampur police station.

Later on Tuesday night, police arrested Sobuj, and obtained a confessional statement from him.

The teenager has been sent to M Abdur Rahim Medical College in Dinajpur for medical examinations today.
