A 12-year-old blind girl has allegedly been raped by her father's co-worker in Kalmakanda upazila of Netrakona.
The incident that allegedly took place on Saturday came to light on Wednesday after the girl's family filed a case with Kalmakanda Police Station.
The lone accused Sajal Mia, 27, a day labourer, is still on the run, said Mazharul Karim, officer-in-charge of the police station.
“Sajal is a resident of Paikapara village of neighbouring Durgapur upazila of the district and often used to visit the girl's house,” he added.
On the day of the incident, he went there around noon and “raped” the girl as no one else was there, Mazharul further said, adding that the accused fled the area soon after the incident and police were on the lookout for him.
The girl underwent necessary medical tests and was produced before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate of the district yesterday for recording her statement, the OC added.
