A minor girl undergoing treatment after being raped a year ago in Tangail’s Kalihati Upazila died in Dhaka on Tuesday, said her family, reports bdnews24.com.

“Staying at her relative's home in Dhaka, the child began to have stomach ache on Tuesday morning. She died before she could be taken to hospital,” the victim's grandfather told bdnews24.com.  

The girl was buried at her ancestral home in Kalihati. The girl was raped on Jun 9 last year and a case was filed against the perpetrator Mahbub, 18, which is now facing court trial, said police.

"Mahbub lured the girl to his house and raped her. She was admitted to Tangail General Hospital as she started to bleed after the rape. She was shifted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital immediately as her condition deteriorated," the victim's father said.
