An 11-YEAR-OLD Jumma girl child has been subjected to an attempted rape in Kalapani Tila Para under Jugyochola Union in Manikchari Upazila of Khagrachari district.
Mr. Farook (35) son of Khalilur Rahman of the same village made the attempt at about 11 am Thursday, February 12.
The child was alone at home while her parents were busy working in the nearby paddy field.
Farook, a motorbike driver, entered their house, grabbed her and then tried to rape her.
But the victim, a fifth grade student of Kalapani Government Primary School, screamed for help and her parents rushed there and rescued her.
They caught Farook in action but could not dare to hold him in fear of retaliatory attacks in future.
He mounted his motorbike and sped away.
Her parents and the village elders later went to the police station to register a case in connection with the incident.----------------
