Police have arrested a man for reportedly raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter in Kaliganj, Jhenaidah.

The accused, Rejaul Molla, 52, was arrested on Tuesday night after a case was filed by his wife and the child’s mother against him with Kaliganj police station.

“On June 12, when my daughter was alone in the house, my husband raped her. I came back while the incident was happening and was informed by my daughter that Rejaul raped her multiple times before as well,” said the child’s mother.

“He threatened to kill my child if she informs anyone, so it was unknown to me. But now I want justice,” added the mother.

Confirming the incident, Kaliganj police station OC Mahfuzur Rahman Miah said: “Acting on the case filed by the victim’s mother, we arrested the accused and sent him to jail through the court.”
