BRAHMANBARIA: The family of a rape victim at Kasba Upazila is now living in constant fear of reprisal from the accused, as a case have been filed against them.

The accused are exerting pressure on the family members to withdraw the case.

On September 30, Bachchu, 50, allegedly violated a mentally imbalanced girl at Dakshinpara in Basudeb. Later, the case was filed against Bachchu and two others — Bahar and Akkas -- with Brahmanbaria Model Police Station. Bahar and Akkas were accused of abetting the rape.

Police have already arrested Bachchu, but the rest is still at large and is threatening the victim’s family with a terrible consequence.

The father of the victim demanded immediate arrest and proper punishment for the accused.
