Police officer and hotel manager rape a minor indigenous girl in Rangamati

On 19 January 2010, Abdur Rahim Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of Vivendi outpost and Mohamed Masud manager of Hotel Palace raped a minor indigenous girl (13 years) in Rangamati.

The under age girl is a student of grade IX of local high school. Couple of days ago ASI Abdur Rahim befriended the victim. On 19 January ASI Abdur Rahim invited the victim over cell phone for having a cup of coffee at Hotel Palace situated at old bus station under Rangamati municipality. On good faith, she went to hotel at 4.00 pm on that day. At the hotel she was first raped by ASI Abdur Rahman and then by hotel manager Mohamed Masud.

No sooner of receiving this report, a group of women rights activists led by Advocate Sushmita Chakma rushed there and found the victim locked in a hotel room. Sensing it, ASI Abdur Rahman fled the hotel. Women rights activists went to the police station and put objection against the said ASI and hotel manager. However, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Kotwali police station Babul Uddin Sardar at first refused to accept any case against the ASI. Finally due to tremendous pressure from women rights groups and media activists, a case against Abdur Rahman and Mohamed Masud was registered with Kotwali police station by elder sister of the victim.

A medical test of the victim was done at the evening on 20 January. But medical report is yet to be received.
