Youth held over rape

Police arrested a youth early yesterday on charge of raping a fifth grader in Bakshiganj upazila the day before.

Accused Saiful Islam, 21, son of Ajit Miah in the upazila, is the girl’s neighbour in the same village.

Victim’s brother filed a rape case with Bakshiganj Police Station on Friday night, accusing Saiful, said AKM Mahbub Alam, officer-in-charge of the police station.

Police arrested Saiful around 1:00am yesterday during a drive in the village and a Jamalpur court sent him to jail after he was produced before it in the afternoon, said the OC.

Saiful raped the girl, daughter of a farmer, when she went to a nearby sugarcane field to collect animal feed around 1:00pm on Friday.

 The man fled the scene when locals rushed to the spot in response to the girl’s scream for help, OC Mahbub added.
