 The accused demanded a sum of Tk2 lakh by blackmailing the victim's family with a recording of the rape 

Two have been arrested over gang-raping a fourth-grader in Pathalia village of Gopalpur in Tangail.

The arrested are Majnu and Josna Begum, both hailing from Pathalia village. 

According to case statements, the fourth-grader lived with her grandmother after her parents' separation. On April 16, she went to neighbour Fazlu Mia's house on an errand. 

At that time, with the help of Fazlu's wife Josna Begum, Majnu and Shohag, from Pathalia village, confined the girl to a room and took turns raping. They also recorded it on a mobile phone.

The rapists, who carry influence locally, intimidated the minor's grandmother Sahera Begum into silence. The girl was secretly treated in a local hospital.

The victim's mother Lovely Begum complained that, taking advantage of their helpless situation, the rapists returned to her house and threatened to take the girl. Fearing for her safety, the victim was hidden in a relative's house in Tangail town.

On June 9, the rapists again came to the minor's grandmother's house and threatened to leak the video if they were not paid a sum of Tk2 lakh.

Officer In-charge of Gopalpur police station Hasan Al-Mamun said: "On Thursday, the victim's mother lodged a gang-rape case in the police station  accusing Majnu, Shohag and their associate Josna Begum. Majnu and Josna have been arrested."

The accused have appeared before a court on Friday. 

Police are trying to catch the other accused, Shohag, who is on the run, Hasan said. The victim will be admitted to a hospital on Friday.
