A JUMMA woman was raped on Sunday, March 20, after a Bengali settler lured her into a jungle in Patachara Union of Ramgarh Upazila, Khagrachari district, according to sources.
The 28-year-old victim is a divorcee and lives with her mother in the village of Pakla-para, Ramgarh.
On Sunday morning, Nurul Huda, 31, (son of late Abu Taher of village Ananda Nagar, Ramgarh) a day labourer working on Navanga road, took her into a roadside jungle and raped her.
When informed, the local people went there and nabbed Nurul on the spot.
Later four pickup loads of army personnel arrived there, and the army officer settled the issue by making Nurul to agree to pay the victim Taka 20 thousand as ‘compensation’.
The army then took him into their ‘custody’.---------------
