A teenage boy raped an eight-year-old girl in a village of Magura on Saturday.
The victim is now being treated at Magura Sadar Hospital.
According to the victim’s father and police, the accused who happens to be a neighbour of the girl, managed to tactfully take her in a sugarcane field around 12:00pm and started raping her.
After some time, two farmers found the victim screaming and the boy fleeing the field, they added.
Officer-in-charge of Magura sadar police station Elias Hossain told Prothom Alo that being informed of the rape complaint, parents of the boy were detained.
Later, the accused on his own accord surrendered to the police station and confessed to his crimes, the police official added.
A case has been filed in this connection in the evening.
