A six-year-old was allegedly raped by a security guard of a residential building in Dhaka’s Shahjahanpur area on Friday night.
Police arrested the alleged rapist Mozibur Rahman (53) after the child’s mother filed a case early today, said Shahidul Haque, officer-in-charge (OC) of Shahjahanpur police station.
The OC, citing the case document, said Mozibur took the girl into a garage and raped her around 9:30pm on Friday when her parents were not home.
Upon receiving the complaint, police sent the victim to the one-stop crisis centre at Dhaka Medical College Hospital this morning for forensic tests.
The child’s mother, a food vendor, said she and her security guard husband went to their respective jobs, keeping the child at home.
“We found her nowhere after reaching home at night. Sometime later, we found her coming out of the garage. She then told us what happened,” the mother told the reporters at DMCH.
