In a separate incident in Gazipur, an RMG worker was raped and the reported perpetrator arrested

A 12-year-old boy – who left his home and rode on a train without informing his family – was raped at the Comilla's Laksam Railway Junction area allegedly by a railway staff on Wednesday.

The suspect, Abul Kalam, a railway employee, lured the hungry child to his room offering him food and then reportedly raped him, the rape survivor said.

Hearing his screams, local youths rushed to the spot and rescued the child while Kalam fled the scene, local sources said.

"As soon as the case gets filed we will take action in this regard," the OC added.
