Father of a Chakma student today claimed that his daughter was raped by the headmaster of her school in Langadu upazila of Rangamati.
The victim's father brought the allegation against Md Abdur Rahim, headmaster of Karlyachhari RS High School, said Mangalkanti Chakma, president of the school managing committee and chairman of Atarkachhara Union Parishad.
"On twenty-fifth August, headmaster Md Abdur Rahim raped my daughter in the school hostel," said father of the victim.
"We wanted to file a case but chairman Mangalkanti Chakma stopped us and said he will try the headmaster for the crime," the victim's father said.
"We have lodged a written complaint but the chairman has not cooperated with us," he alleged.
Mangal Kanti told our Bandarban correspondent that a meeting will be held tomorrow to verify the matter.
Asked if he could try allegations of rape, Mangal Kanti said, "Since I am the chairman of the school managing committee, I must look into the whole matter."
He, however, denies his non-cooperation with the victim's family.
