Two cases of rape in Patuakhali, Jhalakathi
An alleged rapist, Maruf was arrested yesterday from Patuakhali while he was trying to escape after raping a 16-year-old college girl at a garden in Bahalgachia. The victim’s relative informed the police that she was often stalked by Maruf on her way back from coaching classes.
Maruf took the victim to the garden with the help of his friend Rimon.
“While she was being raped, his friend was capturing a video of it,” her relatives said.
Her screams made the locals rush to the place to save her.
She was then sent to Patuakhali General Hospital for examination.
The other incident is the rape of a house-maid in Jhalakathi.
District and Session Judge’s Court yesterday directed officer-in-charge (OC) of Nalchity Police Station to investigate the alleged rape of the housemaid.
According to the statement, the victim worked at a house in Jhalakath, where she was raped numerous times by her employer’s son and at one point she even got pregnant and forced to abort the pregnancy.
The victim asked for help from the alleged criminal’s other but got no justice.
Later she left her work but Ringku, the alleged criminal, tried to rape her again at her home.
The victim finally filed a case on Thursday with Jhalakathi court.
