A youth has been sued on charge of raping a physically challenged girl, now six months' pregnant.
The victim's father filed the case with Kamalganj Police Station on Sunday, said Officer-in-Charge of the police station Md Arifur Rahman.
The accused is Ramkishor Das, 30, son of Shankar Das of Modonmohanpur area in Kamalganj upazila, and also a neighbour of the victim.
The incident came to light when the 19-year-old girl disclosed the matter to her parents after they noticed her physical changes a few days ago, said family members.
The parents then took the girl to a local diagnostic centre for tests and came to know that she was 24-week pregnant.
Quoting the victim, her mother said Ramkishore often came to their house. He developed close relations with her daughter seven months ago. He raped her daughter several times promising to marry her.
Ramkishore's father Shankar Das said his son has been a victim of conspiracy hatched by the girl's parents and their relatives who made futile attempts several times to marry off the girl to his son.
They were investigating the matter, said the OC, adding that the law enforcers are trying to arrest the alleged rapist.
