Case filed over rape of 7-year-old

A case has been filed over rape of a seven-year-old girl at Dhaka’s Sabujbagh.

The victim’s father filed the case at Sabujbagh Police Station last night accusing Zubayer, 25, who lived in his house as a subtenant.

Zubayer and his two brothers lived in a room in the home rented by the minor’s family, said Mahbub Alam, officer in-charge (OC) at Sabujbagh Police Station.

On January 16, Zubayer lured the child to his room with chocolates when her family was not at home, the OC said citing case details.

The family members came to know about the incident three days later and initially tried to hide it in fear of social stigma, he told The Daily Star.

The three brothers fled the house after they came to know about the case. Police were trying to arrest them, said OC Mahbub.
