A Lalmonirhat court yesterday sent a man, 56, to jail after he was produced before it for raping his disabled daughter-in-law in Kaliganj upazila.
Amjad Hossain Bhola, a rickshaw-van puller, was arrested on Monday night after a case was filed that night by the victim, said Kaliganj Police Station OC Sajjad Hossain.
The woman was sent to Lalmonirhat Sadar Hospital for medical tests yesterday morning, he added.
The woman had been staying at her in-law's house since her marriage with Amjad's son eight months ago and her husband stays elsewhere for work. On Monday, their neighbours responded to her call for help and caught Amjad in the act of raping the woman, said police.
