Stalkers attempt to abduct schoolgirl from home

A schoolgirl and her family are in distress after her stalker along with two accomplices stormed their house in Jashore Sadar upazila and attempted to abduct her by force on Saturday evening.

The girl’s father in a complaint filed with Kotwali Police Station yesterday said Mehdi Hassan Runu, 18, son of Mofazzel Hossain of Churamankathi village in the upazila, had been stalking his daughter and making abduction threats to her for quite some time.

Although Mehdi’s parents were informed on various occasions of his conduct, he did not stop harassing the girl, a ninth-grade student at Jaudia Meherullah Secondary School.

Around 7:30pm on August 31, Mehdi and two others — Meher Ali, son of late Fazar Ali Sardar from Jaudia village; and Nashim, son of Rabiul Islam from Badiatola village — came to their house wielding sharp weapons.

The three met resistance from him and his brother as they tried to take his daughter out of the house by force, her father said, adding that the armed attackers beat him up and injured his brother with sharp weapons.

Being unable to abduct his daughter, the criminals vandalised his brother’s motorbike parked by the house. His family is now living in fear of further attacks and his daughter has stopped going to school, he also said.

Samiran Sarkar, officer-in-charge (investigation) of the police station, said they initiated an investigation after receiving the complaint and would take necessary action against the accused if the complaints are found to be true in the investigation.
