Locals handed over the accused to police after a beating

A two-year-old has been reportedly raped in Narayanganj.

The incident took place at Alamin Nagar area of Ward 18 under sadar upazila on Thursday.

The victim’s grandmother, Morsheda said the child was playing in front of her house when one Jahangir Sardar, 45, lured her with a chocolate and took her into his house.

Soon, she heard screams from Jahangir’s house and when she went to inspect, she found her grandchild crying.

Soon people from the surrounding area gathered and started beating Jahangir.

At one point, local councilor Kabir Hossain arrived to control the situation and handed Jahangir over to police.

Kabir said: “As soon as I heard about the incident I informed the OC of the sadar police station and Jahangir was arrested soon after.”

“Jahangir was previously accused of raping his own daughter. The locals beat him and handed him over to police that time too. He served jail-time in that case.”

Narayanganj sadar model police station OC Md Asaduzzaman said: “The child has been sent to hospital and after initial tests evidence of rape has been found. The victim’s mother has filed a case in the sadar model police station in this regard.”
