A court in Kushtia on Monday sentenced a man to life term imprisonment in a rape case in Mirpur upazila of the district. The court also fined him Tk 50,000. 

Woman and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Munshi Md. Moshiar Rahman handed down the verdict after examining all the records and witnesses. 

The convict is Md Nantu, son of Ansar Ali of Chithliya village of Mirpur Upazila.  

Advocate Anuk Kumer Nandi, PP of the court, said Nantu was a tenant of a house owned by Shafayet Hossain at Chitholia village in the upazila.

He used to disturb his neighbour girl and gave her bad proposal several times. Being denied by her, Nantu forcibly entered her room on March 30, 2015, and violated her and also hit her severely. 

Hearing her scream, locals rushed in and took her to Kushtia General Hospital where she died after five months.

A day after the incident, the house owner filed a rape case with Mirpur Police Station against Nantu.
