A housewife was raped allegedly by her husband's elder brother at Churamankathi village in Jashore Sadar upazila on Friday.
The victim woman filed a rape case with Jashore Kotwali Police Station, accusing Babul Hossain, 40, son of Moshiar Hossain of Pultadanga village, the same night.
Quoting the case statement, police said Babul have been offering illicit proposal to the victim since her husband Bipul Hossain married another woman recently and staying elsewhere outside his home.
Taking advantage of the situation, Babul forcibly raped her as she went to his room to serve his meal when none of the family members were present at home on Friday night.
Inspector (operations) of Kotwali Police Station Sheikh Abu Hena said Babul went into hiding after filing of the case.
