If a child under the age of 12 is raped, the jinn will be released. A 7-year-old girl from Gangachara upazila of Rangpur has fallen victim to such superstition. RAB has arrested three accused in the child rape case. The arrested are Mejbaul Haque Ghutu (28), Ghutu’s father Azharul Islam (50) and Suryina Begum (22) of Dakshin Khaleya Kahartari village in Gangachara upazila. They were arrested on Saturday morning from Gobindaganj municipality area of Gaibandha district. Captain Reza Ahmed Ferdous announced the arrests at a press conference at the RAB-13 headquarters in Almanagar on Saturday afternoon. It was said at the press conference that Suryina Begum of Kahartari met the child on the way to school on June 2. At that time, showing the temptation to give money, Suryina asked the child to come to her house after school. After school the child comes to Suryana’s house. At that time, Suryina listened to music on her mobile phone, showed pornographic pictures and left the house with various stories and rumors. According to the previous plan, Ghutu entered Suryana’s house around 2.30 pm and raped the child. Azharul, the father of Suryina and Ghutu, did not come forward even though the child was screaming at that time. Later, with the help of Suryina and Azharul, Ghutu sent the child to his house. When he got sick after going home, the child told his mother to open everything. Later, the family members admitted the child to the One Stop Crisis Center of Rangpur Medical College Hospital. On June 4, the child’s father filed a rape case with the Gangachara police station. Along with the police, RAB started shadow investigation into the matter. The RAB commander further said that during the preliminary interrogation, Ghutu said that his family members believed that he was possessed by a jinn. For this, Ghutu sought treatment from various local hammer doctors and Kabiraj. A Kabiraj told Ghutu that if a child under the age of 12 is raped, it is possible to get rid of the jinn’s asr. Based on this mistrust and superstition, the rape took place with the help of Ghutu, his father and Suryana. However, further investigation is underway, said a RAB official. The arrested accused will be handed over to Gangachara police station, said the RAB commander.
