Seven people, including the suspected rapist, have been accused in a case filed by the mother

A teenage girl, who works at a readymade garment factory, has reportedly been raped and her mother assaulted by the alleged rapist’s family members in Tongi, Gazipur.

The mother lodged a case against seven people at Tongi East police station on Tuesday night, 10 days after the alleged rape, confirmed the station’s Sub-Inspector (SI) Zakir Hossain.

Citing the case details, SI Zakir said one Rubel Mia, 21, of Tongi’s Ershad Nagar, was in a relationship with the girl. He met the girl at her home on the night of July 17 when she was alone and reportedly raped her.

He also allegedly threatened to kill the girl if she told him to anyone.

The girl told her mother on Tuesday, after 10 days, about the incident. The mother then went to Rubel’s home around 4pm and informed his family.

Instead of resolving the matter, Rubel’s family members beat the mother and left her injured. She was rescued by some locals who then took her to a local hospital for first aid.

The woman filed the case with Tongi East police later that night, in which she accused Rubel of raping her daughter and the other six of assaulting her.

The six other accused are Rubel’s father Raju Mia alias Jahangir, 45, Amena Begum, 60, Alamgir Hossain, 40, Ruma Aktar, 30, Rakib Mia, 19, and Jannat, 18.

Four of them were arrested on Wednesday and sent to a local court which in turn sent them to jail. But Rubel and two others are still in hiding, said SI Zakir.

Another held over rape attempt

In another incident, police in Gazipur’s Pubail arrested on Tuesday another teenage boy for allegedly attempting to rape the six-year-old child of his neighbours.

Pubail police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mohidul Islam identified the arrestee as Tuhin, 18, who sells spices at a local market.

Tuhin reportedly tried to violate the child after finding her alone at home on July 24. But he fled the scene when she started screaming, said the OC.

Later, he said, the child told her parents about the incident and Tuhin was arrested after they filed the case with Pubail police on Tuesday. A local court sent Tuhin to jail later.

The child also underwent medical treatment at Gazipur’s Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital.
