Kamrul raped the schoolgirl for 13 days in confinement, abducting her to a house in Raipur upazila of Lakshmipur on Sept 25

A 10th grader of Rustompur village in Faridganj upazila was reportedly raped by her maternal uncle.

The accused, Kamrul Islam, 40, from Lakshmipur district first raped the schoolgirl two years ago when he also filmed the incident, reports our Chandpur correspondent, quoting Nurul Islam, sub-inspector of Faridganj police station.

Blackmailing the girl with threatening to release the video, Kamrul raped her on multiple occasions over the last two years. 

On September 25, Kamrul abducted the girl on her way to a coaching centre and confined her to a house in Raipur upazila of Lakshmipur. He reportedly raped her there for 13 days, said the SI.

Following a complaint lodged by the victim’s family, police rescued the girl from Raipur on Wednesday night and detained Kamrul.

The victim's mother filed a case under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act with Faridganj police station on Thursday.

Kamrul was shown arrested in the case, said Md Shahid Hossain, officer-in-charge of the police station.

The girl was sent to Chandpur General Hospital for medical tests, the OC added.

Dangerous Menace

Experts say sexual harassment has become the most dangerous menace in the country with perverted men from 20-year-old youths to 80-year-olds indulging in such crimes due to a culture of impunity, moral degradation and political backing, the leniency of law enforcement with a prolonged trial process, and improper police investigation.

According to Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK), a rights body, 975 women were raped, including 208 subjected to gang rape, from January to September 30 this year.

Of them, 45 were killed after rape, and 12 others committed suicide.

For the last few days, Bangladesh has seen widespread protests in many districts against the appalling trend of rape incidents and public fury has mounted after the recent gang-rape incident at Sylhet MC College and a housewife’s molestation in Begumganj of Noakhali district.
