A case was filed against seven people including Dumuria Upazila Parishad Chairman Gazi Ejaz Ahmed over the alleged raping of a girl and kidnapping her from hospital premises.

A complaint was lodged with Khulna Woman and Child Repression Prevention Tribunal-1 on Wednesday and Judge Dilruba Sultana asked the Dumuria Police Station to record the complaint.

The matter was confirmed by the lawyer of the plaintiff and divisional coordinator for the Bangladesh Society for the Enforcement of Human Rights in Khulna Mominul Islam.

The other accused of the case are Gazi Touhiduzzaman, Rudaghara union parishad chairman, Gazi Abdul Haque, Al Amin Gazi, Aktarul Alam, Saddam Gazi and Imran Hossain.

Around 10-15 unidentified people were also accused in the case.

According to the complaint, Dumuria Upazila Parishad Chairman Gazi Ejaz Ahmed had raped the girl several times, with a “promise to marry her.”

On January 7, Ejaz took the girl to his Shahpur office and raped her. Later, she was driven out of the office.

Later, the girl went to the one-stop crisis centre of Khulna Medical College and Hospital with the help of her cousin.

The accused, Touhiduzzaman, along with 10-15 people showed up in a microbus and picked her up along with her mother from the hospital.

They took the girl and her mother to Sonadanga Police Station and forced them to give a statement that they were not kidnapped, says the complaint.

Police did not take any action in this regard, said the complaint.

Contacted, Sukanta Saha, officer-in-charge of Dumuria police station, said no complaint has been lodged yet in this connection.

Earlier, the girl had denied all her claims of the rape and abduction at a police station.
