A woman Kalapara upazila in Patuakhali on Wednesday filed a case with Kalapara Police Station alleging that her minor daughter was raped by a local youth by confining the girl in a boat.

The six-year-old kid’s mother filed the case alleging that the youth, Yusuf Fakir, raped her daughter on Tuesday afternoon and fled the area after the incident.

The incident happened when the victim’s mother went for Eid shopping leaving the girl at home.

She alleged that Yusuf allured the girl by offering food, said Kalapara police officer-in-charge Mustafizur Rahman, quoting the case document.

Yusuf fled the areas as the girl started screaming there after the sexual assault.

She told her mother about the incident later.

Police said that the girl was sent to hospital for medical tests and police were trying to arrest the accused.
