A case has been filed against four persons including a UP member for raping a 10th class student at Indurkani in Pirojpur. The victim’s father filed the case on Monday night.
The accused are Faizul dealer, Faizul’s father Babul dealer, mother Fahima Begum and Shahidul Hawlader, a UP member of a ward of Chandipur union.
According to the statement of case, Faizul of the same village had a love affair with the 10th class student. At one stage, Faizul raped her more than once by showing the temptation of marriage. The parents helped the boy in this. When the matter came to light, the girl demanded marriage but Faizul agreed to it
UP member Shahidul called on both the parties to resolve the issue on Saturday. However, he took a large sum of money from Faizul’s family, signed a white stamp of three hundred rupees with his daughter’s family and drove them away.
Denying the allegation of taking money, Shahidul said, “I sat in the meeting several times to resolve the issue.” However, as it has not been resolved, I have been accused of rape. No money was taken from anyone for the settlement.
Pirojpur Additional Superintendent of Police (Sadar Circle) Thunder Khairul Islam said the victim’s father had lodged a case with the police. Police have taken to the field to arrest the accused.
