A six year-old girl was allegedly raped in Araihazar upazila of Narayanganj yesterday.
The victim was sent to Narayanganj General Hospital for tests and treatment.
The child's father filed a case with Araihazar Police Station around yesterday noon, said MA Haque, officer-in-charge of the police station.
Quoting the case statements, Haque said that on Monday evening, rickshaw-puller Delwar, 40, of Idbardi area of the upazila, lured the child saying he would buy her chocolates. He then took her to the bank of the Brahmaputra near her house, and then allegedly raped her there.
Upon hearing the child's scream, family members rushed to the spot and rescued her. Delwar fled the scene.
Police are yet to arrest the accused. The OC said they were on the hunt for Delwar.
