Victim, her family reluctant to discuss incident
A teenage female student is now fighting for her life at a Sylhet hospital after she was attacked by a group of unidentified miscreants wielding sharp weapons in Habiganj’s Baniachong upazila.
The victim was reportedly asleep in her room when the miscreants broke in and attacked in the early hours of Wednesday, according to police.
Neither the victim nor her family were providing any information about the attack, police added.
A neighbour found Marzana lying on the ground and bleeding profusely in the morning. She was immediately rushed to a local hospital.
When her condition started to deteriorate, the teenage girl was shifted to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital around 11am.
A team of local police have inspected the crime scene, said Baniachong police station’s Officer-in-Charge Md Emran Hossain.
“Both the victim and her family are keeping mum over the incident, but we have opened an investigation into the attack,” he added.
