Schoolgirl 'raped' in Pirojpur

Accused held, sent to jail

A Pirojpur court yesterday sent a man to jail on charges of raping a 14-year-old girl in the district's Sadar upazila on Tuesday night.

The accused is Maruf Mollah, 19, a neighbour of the victim.

Maruf along with Ayban Mollah, 20, picked up the girl from her home on Tuesday evening when all her family members were out. They took her to a nearby orchard and raped her, the girl's mother said.

The girl was later found in the orchard at night as the criminals left her there tying her hands and mouth, she added.

SM Ziaul Haque, officer-in-charge of Pirojpur Sadar Police Station, said locals rescued the victim and took her to the police station.

She was immediately sent to Pirojpur Sadar Hospital for medical tests, he added.

The girl's father filed a case under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act accusing the two men early yesterday, he further added.
