A 54-year-old policeman has been arrested for throwing a teenage girl out of his house through the ventilator allegedly after raping her, reports UNB.
Police arrested Muktar Hossain, a constable, after victim's uncle filed a case with Sadar police station on Monday night, said Quamrul Hossain, officer-in-charge of Sadar police station.
