A 54-year-old policeman has been arrested for throwing a teenage girl out of his house through the ventilator reportedly after raping her.

Police arrested Muktar Hossain, a constable, after victim's uncle filed a case with Madaripur Sadar Police Station on Monday night, said Quamrul Hossain, officer-in-charge of Sadar Police Station.

The constable has been residing with his wife at a rented house in TB Clinic area of the district town. He called the 16-year-old girl to his house in absence of his wife at 8pm on Sunday and violated her.

Hearing her screams, locals rushed in and confined the constable to his own house. At one stage, he threw the girl out of his house through the ventilator, according to a UNB report.

Later, the constable was withdrawn and attached to the district police lines as the news spread around.

Besides, a probe body headed by Badrul Alam Mollah, additional superintendent of police (Sadar Circle), was formed to look into the matter.
