Rajshahi mayor sued for raping nurse
A municipality mayor in Rajshahi district has been sued for allegedly violating a nurse.
Victim herself lodged the case against Al Mamun, mayor of Puthia municipality, with Puthia Police Station on Sunday night.
In the case, the victim, a nurse in a private clinic in the municipality area, said she had developed a love affair with Al Mamun. Since then, Al Mamun used to rape her with a false promise of marriage.
On Sunday afternoon, she took position in the mayor's office demanding marrying her.
But, mayor Al Mamun refused to marry her. He also tortured her and drove her out from the office, she added.
Being informed, police rescued her and brought her to the police station. There she lodged the case at about 11:30pm.
Denying the allegation, BNP-backed mayor Al Mamun claimed that he is a victim of conspiracy. His political rival group made the nurse to lodge the file, he added.
Regarding the matter, OC Suhrawardy said police are trying to arrest the accused.
