Two kids raped in Thakurgaon, Jessore

Two arrested for killing fifth grader after rape in Comilla

Two minor girls were raped in Thakurgaon and Jessore on Wednesday while two people were arrested in Comilla in connection with a case for killing a 10-year-old girl after rape on Monday.

A primary school girl aged about 12 was raped by a youth at Shantipur village in Ranishankoil upazila on Wednesday, reports our Thakurgaon correspondent.

Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Ranishankoil Police Station Abdul Mannan said the victim, a Class V student at a local primary school, went to one Tuhin's shop to sell an abandoned silver utensil around 4:00pm.

Tuhin kept the item from the girl and asked her to come later on as he did not have any change.

When the girl went to the shop again Tuhin took her to his house and forcibly raped her, the OC said, adding that hearing screams, villagers caught Tuhin and handed him over to police.

A Thakurgaon court recorded Tuhin's confessional statement and sent him to jail yesterday.

Our Benapole correspondent reported that, a teenage boy allegedly raped a six-year-old girl, also a student of a local madrasa, at Hebea village in Abhoynagar upazila of Jessore on Wednesday.

The victim is now undergoing treatment at Jessore General Hospital.

Victim's father, a mason, said Liton Gazi, 16, son of Jalaluddin of the village, picked up the girl while she was returning home from a neighbour's house around 7:30pm.

Liton then forcibly took her to a nearby bamboo cluster and raped her.

Father of the victim filed a case with Abhoynagar PS accusing Liton, OC of the PS Sheikh Gani Mia said, adding, they were trying to arrest the culprits.
