Medical tests confirm sexual assault on Bogra girl

Medical evidence of the rape of a young girl by a Sramik League leader in Bogra has been found, says police, reports

The perpetrator's family allegedly shaved the heads of the victim and her mother soon after the incident last month.

Medical tests have confirmed the sexual assault on the girl, said case investigation officer and Bogra Sadar police Inspector Abul Kalam Azad on Friday.

"We have received the medical report. The result is positive. We have evidence of the rape," he told the news agency. He said police would produce the main accused in the case, Tufan Sarker and two other suspects, in court later on Friday and plead for an extension of their remand for further interrogation.

The girl, who recently cleared the SSC exams, accused Bogra Sramik League leader Tufan of luring her with a promise of admission to a good college and then raping her on July 17 and several times later. She said several of his associates had also helped him in the act.

The girl's mother filed the case against 10 people on July 23 hours after she and her daughter were picked up from their home by Tufan's relatives and several miscreants.

Tufan's wife Asha Akter and his elder sister Marzia Hasan Rumki, a reserved seat councillor of Bogra Municipality, had assaulted the two and released them after shaving their heads. Following his arrest, Tufan was expelled from the Sramik League, the labour front of the Awami League.

Later, a Bogra court remanded Tufan and his alleged accomplice Munna in custody on July 30 for three days and extended the remand by two more days on Wednesday.

Police also currently have in custody Rumki, Asha and her parents Jamilur Rahman Runu and Rumi Khatun, Tufan's car driver Jitu and Jiban Kumar Rabidas, the barber who shaved the heads of the victim and her mother.

All of them have faced interrogation following court orders. Rabidas and Dipu, another accused in the case, made confessional statements under Section 164 of the CrPC on Wednesday.
