Police arrested a 26-year-old man for raping a college girl in Lakshmipur on Thursday afternoon.

The arrestee, Sudipta Paul, son of Sudarshan Paul of Lakshmipur municipality, is the president of Lakshmipur Hindu Buddhist Christian Student Unity Council.

He was also the former religious affairs secretary of the district unit Chhatra League.

Lakshmipur police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) AKM Azizur Rahman Mia said: " The victim's family was a tenant at Sudipta's house. Sudipta had been raping the girl since 2017 through various forms of manipulation and threats. He also used to record the rape incidents.

He also said the matter came into light, and the victim's family arranged her marriage with someone else. Sudipta spread the videos on social media to defame her.

"Later, victim's father filed a rape case against Sudipta with the station on Thursday. He was sent to jail after court's hearing," the OC added.
