Imam Rapes Child At Mosque

From Dhaka-Tribune:
The arrestee, Manik Chan, 21, was the imam of Muktagachha's Paratongi Kathgora Mosque

Muktagachha police have arrested the imam of a local mosque for raping a child.

The arrestee, Manik Chan, 21, was the imam of the upazila’s Paratongi Kathgora Mosque and a resident of the area.

He used to teach Arabic to the local children at the mosque after Magrib prayers.

On Monday, due to heavy rainfall, none but an 11-year-old student attended the class and the cleric took the opportunity to rape her.

After returning home, the child complained to her parents about the incident and her mother filed a case under the Woman and Children Oppression Prevention Act 2000 that very night.

Police later arrested the accused the same night. Muktagachha police station OC Akhter Morshed said that Manik Chan had confessed to the crime during primary investigation.

He was produced before a Mymensingh court Tuesday with a remand prayer. The court sent him to jail pending the remand hearing.
