10 shown arrested in Kishoreganj
The 10 people detained on Sunday were shown arrested by police on Monday evening after filing of a case in connection with the killing of two brothers in Sadar upazila of Kishoreganj.
Two brothers were killed and around 25 others, including four women, were injured in a clash on Sunday over filing of a case for alleged rape at Purbo Borati village.
The victims are Abdul Ali, 50, and Abu Siddique, 45, sons of Kasim Ali of Borati village.
The case was filed by the alleged rapist's father Abdul Malek on Monday.
Quoting locals, Officer-in-Charge of Kishoreganj Sadar Police Station Mir Mosharraf Hossain said Shafiqul Islam, 25, son of Abdul Malek of the village, raped the nine-year-old daughter of Kanchan Miah, an auto-rickshaw driver, nearly six months ago.
Later, Kanchan lodged a case with the police station, accusing Shafiqul.
Police arrested Shafiqul immediately and produced him before a Kishoreganj court, which sent him to jail.
After Shafiqul's release on bail three days ago, he and his family members put pressure on Kanchan to withdraw the case. As Kanchan refused, the men of the two sides clashed with sharp weapons, leaving 27 people of both groups injured, police said.
They were taken to Kishoreganj General Hospital where Ali and Siddique succumbed to their injuries.
Police detained 10 people, including Kanchan, for their alleged involvement in the killings.
