Father arrested for raping teenage daughter in Sylhet

Police arrested a man yesterday in Sylhet, allegedly for raping his fourteen-year-old daughter.

Mashuk Miah, 42, was arrested from Dakshin Surma upazila in the city early yesterday, after the victim’s aunt filed a case with Osmaninagar Police Station on Sunday morning. 

The victim is undergoing treatment at the One-stop Crisis Centre of Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital, said SM Al Mamun, officer-in-charge of the police station.

The orphaned girl, a madrasa student, used to stay at the madarsa’s  hostel in the same upazila. When she came home during Eid-ul-Fitr vacation, her father raped her several times during her stay, according to the case statement.  

After the vacation, she left for her madrasa, and returned home during Eid-ul-Azha vacation, and her father again started raping her, the case statement adds.

On Thursday, she told her aunt about it. The aunt took her to the police station on Sunday and filed a case accusing the father. 

SM Al Mamun, officer-in-charge of Osmaninagar Police Station, said, “In her statement to the police, the girl accused her father. We arrested him from Dakshin Surma area; he had fled from home after the case was filed.”

“The accused was sent to jail by a court, after he was produced before it yesterday. We also applied for a seven-day remand for the accused, which the court is yet to sanction,” the OC said.
