An eight-year-old girl was killed after rape by a college student allegedly in Ashashuni upazila of Satkhira yesterday.
The victim, a student of class II in a local primary school, used to go to the house of Nirmal Sarkar of Gabtola village in the afternoon to take tuition from his daughter, said her father.
“Yesterday in the absence of Nirmal’s daughter, his son Jaypraksh Sarkar raped the child at his home and threw her into a pond thinking she was dead,” the victim’s father alleged.
Jayprakash Sarkar, a first year college student in Budh Hata BBM Collegiate School, later pulled out the body from the pond and dumped it in the septic tank at his house when locals started looking for the child, the father also claimed.
Police around 11:00pm found the body and sent it to Satkhira Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy, Biplab Kumar Nath, officer-in-charge (OC) of Ashashuni Police Station told our local correspondent this morning.
Jayprakash Sarkar has been detained and is being questioned, the OC added. A general Diary has been filed at Ashashuni Police Station in this regard, he said.
