Man gets life for killing minor after failed molestation bid

A court in Habiganj on Wednesday sentenced a man to life term imprisonment for killing a 9-year-old boy.

The lifer Rayhan Miah, 31, is a resident of Dharmapur village in Lakhai upazila of Habiganj district.

The court also fined him Tk 10,000, in default, to suffer five years more in jail.

According to the prosecution, Rayhan Miah took his co-villager Sharif Miah's son Rubel to a nearby haor fishing by a boat to catch fish on August 8, 2003. He tried to molest the child there but failed as Rubel resisted and started crying out. Then, he tied the minor with rope and threw in the water.

On August 11, police recovered his floating body from the haor.

Deceased’s father filed a case with Lakhai Police Station accusing Rayhan on the day.
