Rajshahi BCL leader sued for rape


A college girl filed a rape case with Bagha Police Station in Rajshahi on Thursday evening against a local Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leader.

Accused Ribon Ahmed Bappi, 28, is the president of Arani Municipal Chhatra League under Bagha upazila. He is the son of late Babul Hossain of Chaksinga Moholla of the municipality.

According to the case statement, Bappi took the college girl, 18, to one of his friends house in Chakarpara village in the last week of July where he raped her with a false promise of marrying her.

Since then the victim has been putting pressure on Bappi to marry her, but he declined. Three months were passed following the incident.

Confirming the matter, Bagha Police Station officer in-charge (OC) Nazrul Islam said the college girl was sent to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital for medical test.

The OC said that the ccused would be arrested.

Contacted, Bappi said, "I am the mayor candidate in the upcoming Arani Municipal election. Because of it, a vested quarter is spreading propaganda against me to tarnish my image. I was not involved in the rape."
