A 24-year-old domestic worker in Chandpur town has been reportedly raped several times over a year by a Dhaka University student and also tortured by his parents for seeking justice.

On information, police arrested the student’s mother Shahnaz Begum. However, the main accused Amjad Mahmud Niloy, 21, and his father Abdul Majed from Charshafi village of Bhola’s Daulatkhan upazila are on the run.

“We will be able to arrest them very soon,” said Chandpur Superintendent of Police (SP) Md Milon Mahmud while confirming the matter, reports a correspondent from Chandpur. 

According to police, the woman has been working in Abdul Majed’s house for four years without any payment. 

Meanwhile, their elder son Amjad, who came to live with his parents a year ago after his university closed due to the pandemic, had been raping the domestic help whenever his parents went out for work.

The woman did not get any remedy even after informing Amjad’s parents. Rather, they forced her to remain silent by torturing her physically and mentally.

Unable to bear the torture for a long time, the woman ran away from Abul Majed’s home on April 30 and tried to commit suicide on the road. But the people around her managed to stop her.

Later, SP Milon rescued the woman and directed the Chandpur Sadar Model police station to take action.

The SP said: “The woman has provided details of the incident in the presence of a magistrate under Section 22. People around the house also told us that the girl was beaten from time to time.”

“She had also undergone a medical examination at Chandpur General Hospital. Once we have the report, everything will be clear. If her guardian wants to take her, they can. Otherwise, we will make arrangements to send her to a support centre,” the SP added.

Chandpur Sadar Model police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abdur Rashid said a case has been registered against three members of the family after hearing details from the woman. 

“We have arrested the main accused’s mother and sent her to jail through the court," he added.
