A rape attempt victim and her family are on the run for filing a case against two people in Panchagarh.

The accused, Fazlul Haque Sagor, 30, of Mithapukur, and Jafrul Islam Antor, 16, of Dokropara in Panchagarh were arrested by the police.

According to the case statement, six months ago the accused tried to undress and rape the girl on camera on a mobile device in an abandoned room in the DC park area of Panchagarh town, but she managed to get away. Later, they threatened to make the video viral and harassed the girl several times. Eventually the video went viral and the family of the victim filed a case against them under the Women and Child Repression Act on May 17.

Acting on the case filing, police arrested the two, sent Fazlul to jail, and Antor to a juvenile correction centre.

According to the family, right after filing the case the accused party threatened the family to withdraw the case and they are now on the run.

The victim's mother confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune and said: "We were getting threats everyday to withdraw the case. Several of our accusations are not even reflected in the filed case documents. The police replaced our written case statement with something else ."

Case investigator at Panchagarh police station, Sub-inspector (SI) Jahidul Islam, said: "We arrested the accused. We applied for remand to interrogate the accused. We do not know anything about changing the case description."

Executive Engineer of the Public Administration Department, Rajibul Islam, said: "Fazlul used to work as the guard for this office. The divisional legal authorities will take action against him."
