A woman and her sixth-grader daughter had been allegedly raped on many occasions for a year by two brothers in Kushtia’s Khoksa upazila.
Police arrested one of the suspects Muktar Hossain on Tuesday afternoon and were looking for his brother Mahbubul Alam Tikka after the woman filed a case accusing them.
A court in the district sent Muktar to jail hours later.
The widow met the upazila nirbahi officer on Monday and said she had been threatened and told to keep silent by the rapists.
She lodged the case the next morning. She and her daughter are in police custody.
In primary investigation, police found that the allegations against the suspects were true and the suspects had been taking advantage of the woman’s helplessness, said ABM Mehedi Masud, officer-in-charge of Khoksa Police Station.
