The girl also alleged that her lover’s family assaulted her physically and threw her in a pond during the protest.
Jharna Akhtar (pseudonym) claimed that Sumon (pseudonym) was picking a love affair for one and a half years with her. The boyfriend took her to different places and sexually abused her for several times with the promise of marriage, Jharna (pseudonym) claimed.
Earlier, village arbitration was held on allegations of immoral relations with several girls by the lover, locals said.
Sumon’s (pseudonym) father said that a year ago, the girl's father came to his house with a marriage proposal. As their family did not agree to this marriage, the girl was making a false drama about the demand of marriage, he added.
Jharna (pseudonym) also complained that she tried to contact with her lover for last several days, but he avoided her and tried to resort to various tricks to get married to elsewhere.
“Finding no way, when I went to his house with a demand for marriage, his family members physically assaulted me and threw me into the pond. I am an innocent girl. I want a fair trial. I will be forced to commit suicide if I am refused by my lover,” Jharna (pseudonym) said.
