BJP leader arrested on charge of raping minor girl
Malda, 26 February 2015: BJP president of Paschimpara booth committee at Laxmighat village of Narhatta gram panchayat in English Bazaar police station Emdadul Hoque (26) was arrested last night on the charge of raping a neighbouring minor girl alluring her with a toy yesterday.
It has been learnt from police sources that the youth allured the girl, a student of class II to his house tempting her with a toy. The girl reportedly fell sick and in face of questions asked by her parents the minor girl reportedly narrated her traumatic experience.
It was then her parents lodged a complaint with English Bazaar police station and police immediately sent the girl for medic al test and arrest the accused.
Trinamul Congress leader and panchayat member of Narhatta gram panchayat Nasimul Sheikh demanded that a mobile phone mechanic Emdadul should be given exemplary punishment.
On the other hand the district BJP president Sibendu Sekhar Roy claimed that Emdadul was a victim of conspiracy hatched by the Trinamul leaders. “His only fault is he actively works for the BJP. Police should hold an impartial probe into the matter,” Mr Roy said.
SP Prasun Banerjee said, “The youth was arrested on charge of raping a seven-year-old girl. Police have started a thorough investigation into the matter.”
