6-yr-old child 'raped', girl accuses hospital manager of rape attempt

Pirojpur, Mymensingh and Lalmonirhat Correspondents | Update:

Prothom Alo illustrationA six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her neighbour in Pirojpur while an indigenous girl accused a hospital manager of trying to rape her in Mymensingh.

In Pirojpur, Mintu Mandal, 35, a neighbour of the minor girl, took her in his residence and raped the girl on Saturday when she was playing with another child in the yard, according to the victim's family.

The girl fell sick on Saturday night and a village doctor suggested her family to admit her into a hospital. The victim has been undergoing treatment in Gopalganj hospital since Monday morning, said her family.

An influential quarter of Pirojpur's Nazirpur upazila was forcing the girl's family not to file any case and to reach a settlement with Mintu Mandal by arbitration, complained the victim’s mother.

Officer-in-charge (OC) of Nazirpur police station, Monirul Islam, said the girl's family was yet to lodge any complaint in this regard.

"We are trying to arrest Mantu," he added.

In Mymensingh, a Garo girl alleged that the manager of Padma General Hospital, Sohel Rana, tried to rape her.

She along with four other Garo girls started taking training as nurse in the hospital on Sunday.

Sohel Rana took the accuser girl to the operation theatre and shut the door in a bid to rape her, alleged the indigenous girl.

The four other girls broke into the OT and rescued her. The girls locked Sohel in the room at the time.

The owner of the hospital Mojibur Rahman, later, went to the spot and let Sohel go.

Police conducted a drive in the hospital and arrested Mojibur Rahman. Sohel Rana managed to flee though.
