Rajat, who was at the side of the field, then grabbed the child’s face and took him to the adjacent field. Rajat raped her there.

The judge ruled on the signatures of seven people.

On the other hand, on April 9, 2013, shopkeeper Abul Hossain Bali lured a 9-year-old madrasa student to the shop in Wazirpur. Later she was raped there. At that time, a customer came and saw the shopkeeper Abul raping the child and went to the madrassa and reported it. Later the madrasa teachers went and rescued the child.
