Police have arrested the muezzin of a local mosque for allegedly raping a ninth-grade student in Sitakunda upazila of Chittagong.

Touhidul Alam Hridoy, 19, the muazzin of RR Jute Mill Jame Mosque in the upazila’s Banshbaria union, was taken into custody on Saturday after the girl’s father filed a case against him, police said.

Sitakunda police station OC Abul Kalam Azad said the teenager was also produced before a court that sent him to jail the same day.

According to case details, Hridoy lived in a room beside the mosque, which is also adjacent to the family’s house. He used to teach Arabic to the girl’s younger brother.

On September 21 afternoon, he took the girl into his room and sexually violated her. The girl told her mother about the incident after returning home.

Her father started the case against Hridoy with Sitakunda police on Friday night. Police arrested Hridoy during a raid the next day.
