2 girls ‘killed after rape’ in Ctg

Police on Friday evening recovered two bodies of young girls from Tripurapara of Jungle Mahadebpur area under the Sitakunda upazila in Chittagong. The two girls were allegedly killed after they were raped. Police arrested a youth, who had allegedly stalked the girls. The youth admitted that he had killed the girls after being refused in love. He had killed the girls with two accomplices. The deceased were identified as Sukhlit Tripura, 15, daughter of Falin Tripura and Chobi Rani Tripura, 11, daughter of Sumon Tripura of Tripurapara of Jungle Mahadeb pur under the Sitakunda upazila in Chittagong.

Family members of the deceased alleged that they were raped and killed as they had not responded to Abul Hossain’s overtures. Taking advantages of the absence of the family members, Abul Hossain and his accomplices walked to their house, raped the girls and hanged them from the ceiling, they alleged.

The body of Sukhlit was recovered from the home of Chobi Rani Tripura while the body of Chobi Rani was found in the same room, said Mahfuzur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Sitakunda police station.

Parents of Sukhlit Tripura on Friday had gone to the hills for work. After returning home, Falin Tripura saw his daughter hanging from the ceiling while Chobi Rani was lying on floor in the same room. Sumon Tripura had lodged a case with the Sitakunda police station yesterday.

“A case has been filed with the complaint that the two girls were killed in a planned manner after they were raped. Abul Hossain, who stalked the girls, was made the prime accused,” said sub-inspector of the Sitakunda police station and the investigation officer of the case.

“We’ve arrested Abul Hossain. He will be produced before the court for recording his statement under section 164,” he said. He also added that a primary investigation revealed that Abul and his accomplices had killed the girls because of unrequited love.
