Man held over rape attempt on teen in running train

A man was arrested on Thursday night for rape attempt on a teenage girl in the toilet of a Rajshahi-bound train. Other passengers of the train detained Mominul Islam, 26, son of Md Philim of Chapainawabganj, and handed him over to police. Ishwardi Railway Police (GRP) in-charge Subir Datta said the victim was going to Rajshahi with her aunt and grandmother by Silk City Express.

After the girl entered the toilet, Mominul forced himself in and locked the door. Passengers gathered outside the toilet hearing the victim's screams. They banged on the door for an hour before Mominul opened it. The people beat him up and handed him over to police. A case was filed against Mominul.
