Police have arrested a representative of a pharmaceutical company for allegedly raping a schoolgirl in Brahmanbaria on the pretext of the false promise of marriage.
The arrestee was identified as Limon Hosen Khan, son of Ashraf Ali Khan of Chandradighalia village under Sadar Upazila of Gopalganj. He was posted as Medical Information Officer at Brahmanbaria Sadar in the Infusion Department of Orion Pharmaceuticals.
Brahmanbaria Sadar Model Police Station’s Officer-in-Charge Abdur Rahim confirmed the incident and said a representative of a pharmaceutical company has been arrested in the rape case.
Limon was arrested from his rented house near Tank Para after the victim filed a case against him at Sadar Model Police Station on Friday night. According to the statement, the victim was introduced to the perpetrator when her elder sister went to Brahmanbaria General Hospital for treatment. They kept in touch with each other over the phone and at one stage, Limon asked her to marry him. Last Sunday, he told the victim to come to Brahmanbaria where they would get married. But instead of going to the marriage registrar, he took her to his place and raped her.
The victim later filed a case accusing Limon of rape and threatening to kill her. She has been sent to Brahmanbaria General Hospital for medical examination.
