A suspected rapist reportedly kidnapped a rape victim and her mother in remote Char Mojammel of Bhola on Sunday to conceal his crime, UNB reports.
A case was filed over the abduction on Tuesday. Police have arrested suspected rapist Abdur Rob but the mother and daughter are still missing.
The victim’s aunt Bibi Hazera said that Rob, char block leader of Kazikandi village, had been raping her niece for the last several months. He threatened her to drive out the family if she disclosed the matter to anyone.
But at one point the 22-year-old victim, abandoned by her husband, became pregnant.
Rob and his cohorts kidnapped the victim and her mother Jorina Begum and confined her father Rafijal in the river island.
Tazumuddin Police Station’s in-charge Faruk Ahmad said that they were trying to rescue the women.
“Once the victim is rescued, a rape case will be filed after completing medical tests,” he said.
