A fourth-grade schoolgirl has been gang-raped allegedly by a neighbouring youth and his brother in Dhunot upazila of Bogra.

The rape suspects were identified as Fajal Sheikh Babu, 24, and his 16-year-old brother.

Police arrested Fajal's younger brother on Tuesday night after the victim's grandfather filed a rape case against the siblings with Dhunot police station, said Kripa Sindhubala, officer-in-charge of Dhunot police station.

The 11-year-old girl is receiving treatment at the One-Stop Crisis Centre of the Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital, added the OC.

According to the case statement, the girl lived with her grandparents in Rudrabari under Choukibari union as her parents were RMG workers in Dhaka.

On Monday night, the girl’s grandparents left her home alone to go to the union council office to enlist their names on the government aid list.

At that time, neighbours Fajal and his brother went to the girl's house to watch television. Soon after, Fajal and his brother raped the girl in turns and fled the scene as she fell severely ill. 

When her grandparents returned, they found the girl unclothed and in critical condition.

They rescued her to the Dhunot Upazila Health Complex, where the doctors initially found signs of rape, said Monira Akter, a physician of the hospital. “The girl has been transferred to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital for better treatment."

Dhunot police station OC Kripa Sindhubala said: “We have made an arrest acting on the rape accusation. The arrestee was produced before a court and he has confessed to his crime. We are trying to arrest his brother. Meanwhile, the girl is undergoing treatment at a hospital.”
