Rape of Sunamganj Teenager: Main accused among 2 held

Sunamganj police on Monday detained two people, including the key accused, in connection with a case for raping a teenage girl in Sadar upazila about eight months ago.

Following a case filed by the victim's mother with South Sunamganj Police Station against seven to eight people on Sunday, police detained Abdur Nur, 60, and his nephew Kabir Ahmed, 45, from their house.

The medical report says the 14-year-old girl, now eight-month pregnant, is expected to give birth to a child on April 5.

According to the case statement, the fifth grader victim, who left her study last year due to the family's financial crisis, was alone at home as her parents were out of home for work.

Sensing her parents' absence, Nur entered the house and raped the girl on a number of occasions and threatened her not to disclose the matter to anyone else.

Four months after the incident, when the girl was facing various health complications she disclosed the matter to her mother, who informed the village leaders.

The village leaders later arranged an arbitration and fined Nur Tk 50,000. They also told Nur to marry the victim within the next one and a half months.

Nur instantly gave Tk 20,000 to the victim's family, but he did not pay the rest of the amount and refused to marry the girl. Lastly, the girl's mother filed the case on Sunday.

Police produced the arrestees before a Sunamganj court yesterday that sent them to jail, OC of South Sunamganj Police Station Ikhtiar Uddin said.
