A 45-year-old man has been arrested on charges of murder and rape of a four-year old child in Rangpur district.

Jahurul Huq Rana alias Chokku was arrested by Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) from Keranipara area in Rangpur city on Wednesday for allegedly killing the four-year old girl child Maisha Akter.

The police superintendent of PBI, ABM Zakir Hossain, disclosed the matter while addressing a press conference at his office on Thursday afternoon.

Family members also claimed the girl was killed after rape.

The PBI police super said the family of the child and accused Jahurul Huq Rana alias Chokku were neighbours. Maisha was the daughter of grill-mechanic Monwar Hossain of Barabari Sarkarpara village under Ward No. 14 in Rangpur. She used to address Chokku as dadu (grandpa).

The body of the girl, who went missing on Monday, was found on Tuesday in a nearby ditch.

Seeing Maisha's body lying on the edge of the ditch, locals informed the police on Tuesday morning. Later, the police went there.

After Maisha's father Monwar Hossain filed a case with Kotwali Police Station of Rangpur Metropolitan Police (RMP), Rangpur PBI took charge of the investigation into the case.

At one stage of the investigation, Jahurul Huq Rana alias Chokku was arrested in Keranipara. He was later produced before a Rangpur court where he made a statement confessing to the killing of Maisha.

The father of the victim said his daughter was killed after rape.
