Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) of Chapainawabganj, Mahbub Alam Khan, said: “The girl had been missing since Monday afternoon. The girl’s father lodged a general diary (GD) with Chapainawabganj Sadar model police station in the evening that day.”

Locals found her body in a bamboo grove and informed the police. Police then recovered and sent her body to Chapainawabganj District Hospital for an autopsy, ASP Mahbub added.

Convicted, arrested in rape cases 

Justice is taking its due course in cases filed for rape. A man was jailed for life for raping a woman in Kushtia last year, while police arrested another for allegedly raping a schoolgirl in Khulna.

In Kushtia, a court on Tuesday sentenced a man to life in prison for raping a woman in Karigarpara in Bheramara upazila.

Kushtia Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Munshi Md Moshiur Rahman gave the verdict in presence of the convict, said Public Prosecutor Abdul Halim.

The convicted Biplob Das, was also fined Tk50,000. Failure to pay the fine would result in an additional year in jail.

According to the case statement, Biplob broke into the woman’s house and raped her on May 21, 2019. He attempted to rape the woman again on June 7 but locals caught him and handed him over to police.

In Khulna, police on Tuesday arrested a man for being involved in the gangrape of a seventh-grade schoolgirl in Digholia upazila.

The arrested was identified as Shaheen, 26, confirmed Digholia police OC Monjur Morshed.

A case was filed on Monday, which stated one Shariful Islam, 30, was the girl’s neighbour. He was thrown out of the building when it was discovered that he took indecent photos of the girl.

On Friday, Shariful invited the girl to Fulbarigate, saying he will return her pictures but he and two of his friends, Shaheen and Kajol, took the girl to his new flat and took turns to rape her all night.

Returning home the next morning, the girl disclosed the matter to her family.

The girl was admitted to Khulna Medical College on Monday as her physical condition deteriorated.
