Send Bogra rape victim to safe home: Court
A Bogra court on Monday ordered the authorities concerned to send the female student who was raped by Sramik League leader Tufan Sarkar to safe home and her mother to support centre after their medical treatment.
Additional Judge of Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-1 Amdadul Haque passed the order in the afternoon to ensure the victim and her mother’s safety, reports the UNB.
Earlier in the morning, the victim and her mother were released from Shahid Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital here, said deputy director of the hospital Nirmalendu Chowdhury.
On July 17, Sramik League leader Tufan took the girl to his house at Badurtala in the district town promising to arrange her admission to a local college, and raped her there.
When Tufan’s wife Asha and her elder sister Bogra municipality female councillor Marzia Hasan Rumki came to know of the incident, they along with some associates picked the girl up and her mother from their house.
They allegedly beat the girl and her mother with sticks and shaved their heads.
