5th graders tortured; 2 held

UNB, Pirojpur

Police on Sunday arrested two people for tying two minors to a tree and torturing them on suspicion of stealing a mobile phone in Pirojpur's Bhandaria upazila.

The detainees were identified as Khalilur Rahman, 65, and his son Mehedi Hasan, 27, of Bhitabaria village of the upazila. The victims were named as Rakib, 9, and Hridoy, 11.

"Khalilur and Mehedi tied the children to a tree with rope and beat them up mercilessly on Saturday, accusing them of stealing a mobile phone," said Rakib's mother Rashida Begum.

The children fell sick after being subjected to barbaric torture. Locals later rescued them and took them to the Upazila Health Complex, she said. Officer-in-Charge of Bhandaria Police Station SM Maksudur Rahman said Rakib's mother filed a case with them on Saturday over the matter.

The accused were produced before the court which sent them to jail.
