Forced marriage after rape: Pabna OC suspended

Pabna Sadar Police Station Officer-in-Charge of Obaidul Huq has been suspended as he allegedly arranged a marriage between a gang-rape victim and one of the alleged rapists in an attempt to cover up the crime.

Confirming the news, Rafikul Islam, superintendent of police in Pabna said the Police Headquarters issued the suspension order.

Earlier on September 12, OC Obaidul was withdrawn and Sub-Inspector Ekramul Haque suspended for the allegation.

A mother of three has recently been married off to her ‘rapist’ at the Pabna Sadar Police Station after she was gang-raped at Dapunia area of Sadar upazila.
