A TEENAGE Marma girl was subjected to an attempted rape on Friday in Sapru Karbari Para under Maischari Union in Mahalchari Upazila.
The would-be rapist, Saidur Rahman (22), has been taken into police custody, according to sources.
The victim, a student of class ten, was cooking food at their home alone, with her parent busy working in their paddy field, when Saidur, son of Badsha Mian from Joysen Para, entered their house and attempted to rape her.
The girl fought back and was able to save herself.
She then ran to their neighbours and informed them about what had happened to her, and they caught Saidur.
An hour later local Bengali elders, accompanied by a contingent of police personnel, rushed there to settle the matter through negotiation. They were followed by a group of army personnel who made sure that Saidur was handed over to the police.
The victim’s father said he would file a case against Saidur in connection with the incident.---------------
