A college girl appeared at a police station in Rangpur on Wednesday with a dead foetus and sued her boyfriend and his friend for aborting her unborn child by rendering her unconscious.
In the statement of the case filed with Gangachara Police Station, the first-year college student said on Monday, when she was 26 weeks pregnant with the child of Mohammad Jony, his friend Mohammad Shimul told her that Jony wanted to marry her and the former wanted to meet her at a clinic in Rangpur town.
Jony, who recently passed HSC and son of Bishadur Rahman of Ghagatatari Bhangi village in Gangachara upazila, had cut off ties with her after she became pregnant with his child. Before going completely out of reach, he refused to marry her and asked her to abort the child.
After arriving in the town from Gangachara on Monday, Shimul made her wait at the clinic till late at night, saying that Jony was still on the way from Dhaka. “I trusted him and continued waiting for Jony,” she said.
Shimul then brought her food as it was getting late. Soon after having the food, she slipped into deep sleep. “He must have given me sedative drugs in the meal,” she said.
On Tuesday morning, she realised that her child was aborted through surgery. Later, at her persistent demand, the clinic authorities were compelled to give the dead foetus to her.
She then went home and took her family members along to the police station to file the case on Wednesday.
Susanta Kumar Sarkar, inspector (investigation) of the police station, said they launched an investigation and autopsy of the foetus has been conducted.
Sub-Inspector Moqbul Hossain, the investigation officer, said they would take the girl along in Rangpur town to identify the clinic.
