A teacher at a private nursing school was arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a student in Lalmonirhat's Aditmari upazila yesterday.
The arrestee, Asaduzzman Asad, 35, of Khatapara village in the upazila, is a director and teacher of Manasika Medical Institute in the village.
The case was lodged with Aditmari Police Station yesterday morning and police arrested Asad in the afternoon, said Hareshwar Roy, officer-in-charge of the police station, adding that he would be produced before a court today.
According to the case statement, the police official said the arrestee “raped” the victim, 20, when she went to the teacher's house beside the institute to have her exercise book signed around noon on February 5.
In the statement, it has been mentioned that nobody was at the house then, the OC said.
On Wednesday, Asad allegedly called the victim over the phone and told her to go over to his place or else he would divulge the rape incident to her husband, the OC added.
The woman's medical test was done at Lalmonirhat Sadar Hospital yesterday. The result of the test would be known on Sunday, said Monjur Morshed Dolan, resident medical officer of the hospital.
