Karim, a neighbour of the teenager, raped her multiple times over the past three years
Police on Thursday arrested two local Awami League leaders on charges of raping a 15-year-old girl multiple times in Daganbhuiyan upazila, Feni.
Karim Mahajon, and Belal Hossain were shown arrested in a case filed by the girl's mother under the Women and Child Repression Prevention Act on Thursday.
Confirming the matter on Thursday, Daganbhuiyan police station officer-in-charge Imtiaz Ahmed said the duo will be produced before court on Friday.
Locals identified Karim as the joint general secretary of Matubhuiyan union unit Awami League and Belal as the general secretary of Yeakubpur union's Ward 2 unit Awami League, both of Daganbhuiyan upazila.
The girl's mother alleged that Karim, a neighbour, raped her daughter multiple times over the past three years. At one stage, she became pregnant and Karim forced her to have an abortion.
Police, however, are yet to disclose the details regarding the abortion as they are still investigating.
The girl's mother also alleged that Belal raped her daughter when he found her alone, and that he continued to rape her for three months.
