Police accept case, accused absconding
Although police accepted a case in connection with a rape attempt on a teenage girl in Chittagong city's Chandgaon area on Sunday, the accused was absconding till yesterday.
The 18-year-old girl filed the case with Chandgaon Police Station on Monday.
Her brother earlier alleged that police refused to take the case till Monday evening.
Officer-in-Charge Saiful Alam Chowdhury said, “We have sent a message to Rangunia Police Station to arrest the accused.”
The 38-year-old accused, Mohammed Elias, 34, of Rangunia Sharaf Bhata, seriously assaulted and injured her during a failed rape attempt in Chandgaon area on Sunday.
The girl, who also hails from Rangunia, was sent to an uncle's Chandgaon house two weeks ago for her security as the accused allegedly used to stalk her in the village.
Rangunia Police Station Inspector (Investigation) Abul Kalam Azad said they were yet to get the message from Chandgaon police.
