Pregnant girl seeks justice against 'rapist'

A rape victim, now two-month pregnant, on Tuesday filed a written complaint to Sunamganj Sadar upazila nirbahi officer (UNO) seeking action against a local union parishad (UP) member who allegedly raped her two months ago.

In the written complaint, the 21-year-old girl said her mother has been maintaining their family amid hardship since her father's demise three years ago.

Two months ago, Faizul took her to Dhaka promising her of giving a job abroad.  

“He later confined me to a hotel room and raped me,” said the victim.

The incident came to light when the girl disclosed the matter to her parents after they noticed her physical changes a few days ago.

The parents then took the girl to a local diagnostic centre for tests and came to know that she was pregnant.

Contacted, the UP member under question said the allegation brought against him is totally false.

UNO Yeasmin Akter Rima said after getting the complaint, she forwarded it to  Officer-in-Charge (Investigation) of Sadar Police Station Mohammad Shahidullah for taking action.

Contacted, the police official said action will be taken against the accused after conducting a proper investigation into  the incident.
