Permanent Address: Village – Velebari – Mejitari, P.s. Aditmari, District – Lalmonirhat, Bangladesh.
Religion of the victim: Hindu (Sanatan)

2) Mohammad Aminul Isllam (35)
3) Mohammad Bablu (20)
4) Mohammad Azizul Islam (45) : All of village : Pachim Velabari, P.S. Aditmari,Lalmonirhat.
Date of event: 29th April, 2014 at about 10.00 hours.
Case filed on 02.05.2014 ( Aditmari P.S. case No.4 dated 02.05.2014 under section 7/30 of Women and Children Repression Act,2002.
Facts of the Case:
The destitute Hindu victim Ms.Pinky Roy was abducted on 29th of April,14 by four Muslim perpetrators. Those perpetrators locked her in a nearby village and raped. The members of Hindu family demanded help from the nearby police; but the police remained silent till filing of the First information report on 02.05.2014.
Mohammad Bulet married the girl following the abduction day and converted to Islam most illegally, but the victim claimed to be completely unaware about the matter by a Notary Public.
Due to death of mother of the victim girl the father married other women and due to irresponsible attitude on the part of father of the victim, the case filed by father without mentioning the incident of rape and forceful conversion may lead the case frustrated.
Action taken: –
Aditmari P.S. Case No.4 dated 02.05.2014 under section 7/30 of Women and Children Repression Act was filed at Aditmari police station by the illiterate father of the victim.I, on behalf of BDMW communicated with Md.Aslam Iqbal-Officer in Charge of Aditmari police station over his cell number 01713373947, he said a case has been registered and no perpetrators have yet been arrested by them.I also had drawn the attention of Officer in Charge of Aditmari P.S. that why the penal section offence relating to rape and forceful conversion has not been incorporated in the first information report (FIR), Mr.Md.Aslam Iqbal replied that as the victim and her father did not say anything relating to rape and forceful conversion during filing of the case.
I also talked with Journalist.Dilip Roy (reporter of Daily Star) over his cell number 01719753607 who spoke with me and gave me to understand after thorough discussion with minor victim girl who described her ordeal and said ” I have been raped and forcefully converted to Islam) Copy of the Affidavit made by victim forcefully obtained by perpetrator has been handed over to our correspondent – Dilip Roy. So, the story made by father during filing F.I.R. at the P.S. is far from truth. In this regard the police suppressed the material facts to conceal the rape and forceful conversion. In this connection I also talked with Superintend of Police, Lalmonirhat over cell phone who also trying to conceal the material facts to help getting impunity to the perpetrators.
1. Bangladesh Minority Watch is very much concerned about concealment of fact of rape and forceful conversion of Hindu girl in the First information Report.
2. The perpetrators should be arrested immediately.
3. The abductors should be punished as per law of the land.
4. The State should protect the religious/indigenous minorities from ethnic cleansing.
5. The police officers responsible for suppressing the facts should be punished for their negligence of duties.
6. Necessary legal assistance including the psychological treatment for recovery from traumatized position of the victim should be given by the state.
Documents and papers: After thorough investigation by BDMW the documents relating to this case will be attached. The matter has been reported in various news papers of Bangladesh.
BDMW decided to visit the place of occurrence within this week.
With best regards,
Founder President-Bangladesh Minority Watch (BDMW)
