Eti Rani Acharjee is an adolescent girl and minor age 14 years 9 months only. On 23.08.2014 when she is going to coaching class at the kaiyempur bazar, Bhamanbaria at her teacher home. The perpetrator Mohammedsiddiqur Rahman (20 years) MohammedRahimr Rahim (48) wife mosammat. Sohenur Begum (42) and few others forcefully put into micro bus and flown away for unknown destination. When the parents heard the news, they went to the police station and asking for help to rescue the girl but they didn’t do any action at that period of time. After 4 days the police take can a case against the perpetrators case No: Kasba P.S. case No. 55 dated 27.08.2014 under Section 7/30 of the Women and Children Repression Act, 2003. The officer in charge when the parent try to met him, he replied it is a love affair so what can we do, better you can arranged a marriage between them. Here in Bangladesh each and every where is a problem regards on this issues. When they people heard that the victims are Hindu the law and order people are always trying to shelter the perpetrators. Even to some, the extent they are not interested to take any action against the culprit.

In the real fact, indeed the motives were different, the father of Eti Rani Acharjee has a big property and wealthy man in his locality- ALL most few cores taka and Eti was their only daughter. The local few people planned if they captured her daughter than they can capture his big Properties. It was a pre plan for a long period of time. To grip the land and property the perpetrators kidnapped his daughter in the name of Love affairs. This is the one kind of tortured to capture the land and forcefully live Bangladesh to India. Most cases the Police and law and order officers are involved and giving the shelter of perpetrators. Moreover, they allow for conversion.

Hi Chandan.  I've been reading your articles and most were women are abused.  What are your various actions in your organization and community to lessen this kind of act?
