Police have arrested a 33-year-old teacher named Yassin Arafat for allegedly raping a madrasa student in Panchagarh. He was arrested on Sunday (March 20) night from the Madrasa area of Sadar Upazila. When the teacher was produced in court today (Monday) at noon, the court ordered him to be sent to jail.
Madrasa teacher Yassin Arafat is the son of Samser Ali of Gaigram Majh village in Sadar Upazila of Nilphamari district.
According to the case file, the 12-year-old victim was studying at Hafezia Madrasa in Sadar Upazila. When all the students of the madrasa fell asleep on the night of March 11, teacher Yassin Arafat called the student to his bedroom saying that he would press his feet. After raping him at night, the child left the madrasa and went home the next day. After staying at home for 5 days, the student’s father asked him to take him to the madrasa.
Later, the student told his father everything. After the victim’s father informed all the teachers including the president of the madrasa, he filed a case with the Sadar police station without getting justice. He was arrested in connection with the case.
Panchagarh Sadar Police Station OC Abdul Latif Miah said the accused madrasa teacher was arrested and sent to jail through a court.
