Sherpur health complex doctor held in rape case
Sherpur police arrested a medical officer of Sherpur Upazila Health Complex on Tuesday evening for his alleged involvement in a rape case.
Police said Dr Shahadat Hossain Arun, 28, son of Ebarat Ali, raped a nine-year-old girl who used to work as a domestic help at his residence on November 28.
When the girl fell sick following the incident, Arun sent the girl back to her residence after providing some treatment at the hospital.
But when the condition of the girl deteriorated on Tuesday afternoon, she told her parents about the incident. Her parents rushed her to Dhunat Upazila Health Complex.
On information, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Dhunat Police Station (PS) informed the matter to Sherpur PS.
Arun was arrested that evening and was sent to jail yesterday morning.
However, Arun denied the allegation and said that the case is ill-motivated.
Meanwhile, there is a rumour that the case could be settled down in exchange for money.
