A seventh grade girl has been raped at Senab village under Kauraid union in Sreepur upazila of Gazipur District.
The victim, who is 12 years old, is a student of Lakchatal Islamia Dakhil Madrasa.
A 12-year-old girl was kidnapped and raped late on Thursday.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, her father said she had gone missing on Thursday and was found lying unconscious on Bund Road the next day. “When I returned from work on Thursday, I found her missing. We looked for her the entire night and reported the matter to police,” he said.
She was taken to Mayo Hospital where doctors treating her said her condition was critical. Her family and neighbours protested at the hospital.
City Division SP Asad Sarfaraz Khan said police had registered a case.
The Mumbai police have held two more persons in connection with the rape of a 29-year-old model inside a police post.
With this, eight people have been arrested in the case, three of them policemen.
In addition to sexual assault of the victim, the arrested have been accused of extortion.
Among the arrested are two assistant inspectors and a constable, besides a woman who posed as a constable, to extort money and rape her after threatening to frame her in a false case according to the victim’s complaint.
The others, said the police, had peripheral roles in setting up a scenario she found herself caught in.
The victim and the accused have provided different versions of the sequence of the events, with the accused policemen purportedly admitting to extortion but not rape, said police sources.
According to the complaint, the woman had gone to a five-star hotel in Sakinaka for the casting of a film, where she met an agent and his friend. When the agent told her to go to one of the rooms to meet the production staff, she refused and left the hotel.
“She told us that when was walking away from the hotel, a police vehicle pulled up, and the occupants, three policemen in plainclothes — Assistant Police Inspectors Khatape and Suryavanshi and Constable Kode — from the Sakinaka police station stopped her. She was threatened that if she failed to board the vehicle, they would implicate her in a false case. Once she got in, they took her to the police post,” said a police officer.
The accused told the police that they had a tip-off that the woman was indulged in flesh trade and that they had sent decoy customers and agent to the hotel. They admitted that they brought her to the police station and demanded money but denied sexual assault,” said a police sources.
SRINAGAR, India (AFP) – A court in Indian-administered Kashmir sentenced four men to death Friday after they were convicted of the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl which sparked protests across the region.
The four convicts, including two locals and two migrant labourers from West Bengal and Rajasthan, had been found guilty earlier this month of the 2007 killing near the de facto border with Pakistan, known as the Line of Control (LoC).
Sadiq Mir, Azhar Mir, Jehangir Ansari and Suresh Kumar were all arrested soon after the teenage student was discovered with her throat slit in an orchard in the frontier district of Kupwara in June 2007.
The girl had gone missing on her way from school and it later emerged that she had been abducted by the four men.
A statement from the court in the frontier district of Kupwara, 100 kilometres north of the region's main city of Srinagar, said the four convicts should "be hanged by the neck till they are dead", although they do have the right to appeal against the sentence.
India only executes people in the "rarest of the rare" cases but the girl's killing was particularly shocking, even in a country that has a distressing record of high-profile sex attacks.
The father of the girl, who cannot be named as all rape victims have to remain anonymous, welcomed the judgement.
"We fought for justice for eight long years. I am happy our prayers were finally answered and justice was done today," the father told AFP.
India's notoriously sluggish legal system means it can often take years for suspects to face trial, even for crimes such as rape and murder.
There have been multiple allegations of mass rapes carried out by Indian soldiers in Kashmir in the 25 years since the federal government brought in laws making it virtually impossible to put troops on trial in civilian courts.
"The judgement is welcome deterrence but there has not been a single conviction of soldiers or state officials involved in similar offences," Khurram Parvez, a prominent rights activist, said after the sentencing.
"The impunity in such cases persists," he added.
India has hundreds of thousands of troops stationed on its side of the disputed region which has been divided between India and Pakistan since independence in 1947. Both claim the territory in its entirety.
