Police arrested the principal of a madrassa for raping a nine-year-old female student in Dhaka’s Kodomtoli neighbourhood.

Mufti Alauddin, 39, was the principal of a madrasa at Saddam Market in Kodomtoli, said Inspector Abdul Jalil, chief of Kodomtoli Police Station.

“After raping the child, the teacher scared her saying she will go mad in case she tells anyone about the incident,” said the OC, reports bdnews24.

He said the child was admitted to the One-Stop Crisis Centre in Dhaka Medical College Hospital for a medical test on Thursday.

OC Jalil said the girl’s mother married again after the death of her father and stays with her new family. The nine-year-old girl and her visually impaired brother stay with her uncle’s family.

“On Mar 1, Alauddin called the girl in after finishing studies and raped her. The madrasa was closed the following day as it was Friday,” Inspector Jalil said.

The girl did not go to madrasa on Saturday and Sunday and revealed the incident of rape to her grandmother.

Police filed a case once they knew about the incident and sent the child to hospital. Later, Alauddin was arrested with the help of locals.

OC Jalil also said Alauddin denied the allegation saying he had scolded two girls as they were fighting over a mobile phone, and one of them came up with the false allegation.
