Bristy -11 a minor Hindu girl of grade-7 of Bogra was kidnapped and raped brutally for 5 days by one Mohammed Azizul Sheikh, 25. On 8th May 2016 at around 7pm, Bristi’s schoolmate Shirin, a Muslim girl and also a neighbor came to her house and requested to go to a nearby house to bring some school note from another girl, Bristy agreed unwillingly. By this way, she was kidnapped at knifepoint by Azizul and others by a microbus.
They seduced her with chloroform to an unknown place. In Bristi’s own words, “I was senseless and while I open my eyes in a room, I was fully naked and raped. Azizul was at the room. After that day, he repeatedly raped me and also changed places. I was crying all along while he was raping me like an animal. After 5 days my father and few local people rescued me.”
While kidnapped, Bristi tried to escape, but soon weakened by the affect of chloroform in a handkerchief used to seduced her. Ronjita, Sukumol and Promila age 27-35 witnessed the kidnapping but kept quiet as Mohammed Azizul threatened ned with a knife to kill them. Do you want justice? Bristi replied, “Definitely, Azizul did the same thing with other Hindu girls before me. Because of embrassed parents did not come forward and administration also was relactant to do anything, but I want justice, I want justice.”
Bristi’s parents are poor (Father: Amal Chandra 5 &MotherRenuka Rani 42 of GangNagar, Mahjpara, Shibgonj, Bogra). She studies at A. M. High School of GangNagar, Bogra and she wanted to be a teacher.
