AN autistic Jumma girl has been reportedly raped by a Bengali settler in Sajek in Rangamati district.
Locals said the incident happened at 3pm today at Nakshachari under Sajek Union while the victim, a 16-year-old girl, went out for a walk.
Finding her alone, Md. Mamun, 20, son of Jalil, of Baghaihat bazaar, took her into a roadside jungle and committed rape on her.
The villagers recovered the girl from the jungle, but failed to nab Mamun as he escaped riding his motorbike.
The incident was reported to the Baghaichari Thana, but the police are yet to arrest him.
Preparations are reportedly underway to file a regular case in this connection.
