A third grader was killed after being raped allegedly by a college student at Gabtola village in Ashashuni, Satkhira on Sunday night, reports UNB.
The deceased was Sushmita, daughter of Proshanto Das and a student of Gabtola Government Primary School.
Police arrested alleged Joydeb Sarker, son of Nirmal Sarker and a student of Budhhata BBM Collegiate College in connection with the crime.
Victim’s father said Sushmita used to go at Nirmal’s daughter Ambika every afternoon for private tuition. As Ambika was not at home on Sunday, his brother Joydeb taught Sushmita.
There was no one at Joydeb’s house and Joydeb raped Sushmita there.
As Sushmita became senseless, Joydeb threw her into a pond, he said.
When her family members along with villagers started to search her, Joydeb picked the body up from the pond and kept it at his bathroom.
On information, police recovered the body from the bathroom of Joydeb’s house around 11:00am and arrested Joydeb, said Biplob Kumar Nath, officer-in-charge of Ashashuni police station adding that Joydeb confessed to his guilt in primary interrogation.
