A nine-year-old madrasah girl was raped reportedly by the imam of a mosque in Ashulia here on Sunday, reports UNB.

Abdul Al Mamun, imam of Baitul Mamun Jame Mosque at Dosaid, used to teach the victim Arabic at the mosque, police said.

After giving her lesson on Sunday morning, the imam took the girl to his room and violated her.

He also recorded the shameful act in his mobile phone and threatened to kill the girl if she disclosed it. However, the victim narrated the incident to her parents.
