House tutor lands in jail over rape of ninth-grader
A Noakhali court yesterday sent a home tutor to jail for his alleged involvement in the rape of a teenage girl in the district's Chatkhil upazila.
The accused is Farabi Ahmed Foyej, 25, of the upazila's Porkot village, said police.
Anwarul Islam, officer-in-charge of Chatkhil Police Station, said they arrested the accused on Tuesday night after the victim's family filed a case with the police station.
According to the case statement, Farabi used to offer tuition to the ninth-grader at her home. He had been raping the minor girl for the last two years on promises of marriage.
Recently, in a village arbitration, the accused's father also promised to marry off his son with the girl.
As Farabi's father denied marrying his son, the girl's family filed a case against him.
Receiving the case, police arrested the tutor immediately, said the OC.
