“His aunt was not at home at that time. And the seven-year-old girl’s father was sleeping in another room when Rupon sexually assaulted his cousin.”

The seven-year-old told her mother everything when she returned home that evening. And the girl’s parents then took her to Chittagong Medical College Hospital on Saturday.

Her father filed a case with Kotwali Police Station at night on that day. OC Mohsin said Kotwali police launched a drive after that.

“Rupon was hiding in the city’s Sholashahar on Sunday and was arrested during a raid at night,” he said.
