Police on Thursday arrested a young man for allegedly raping a teenage girl here whereby she ‘became’ seven months pregnant in Savar. 

The arrestee was identified as Kawsar Islam Shahin, 30, son of Abdus Salam of Hetalia village of Bhandaria upazila in Pirojpur.

Shahin had been living in Hemayetpur when he developed a love relationship with the victim hailing from Tetuljhara. He had violated her at the promise to marry her.

However, when the victim became pregnant, Shahin refused to marry her prompting the victim to file a case with Savar Model Police Station.
