A 12-YEAR old Jumma girl was subjected to an attempted rape in Ramgarh on Friday, sources said.
Md. Hanif, a 20 year old Bengali settler from Dhakaya Colony in Ramgarh town, attacked the girl, a fifth grade student, when she and two of her friends went to collect firewood about two kilometers from her home at Batchandra Para under Ramgarh Sadar Union.
Her two companions and classmates were able to run away when Hanif, son of Noor Hossain, chased them.
Hanif caught her and tried to rape her.
But she struggled to free herself and was rescued when the villagers rushed there after they were informed about the incident by the escaped children.
The villagers caught Hanif and later handed him over to the police. It is not known if any case has been filed against him.---------------
