Police have arrested the security guard of the house of Fardin Iftekhar Dihan over the killing of ‘O’ level student of Mastermind English Medium School Anushka Noor Amin after rape.
He was picked up on Monday noon, said Deputy Commission (Ramna division) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Sajjadur Rahman.
He said they took the security guard under their custody for interrogation. He had been on the run since the incident.
Anushka died from excessive bleeding after rape in the city’s Kalabagan area on Thursday.
Victim’s mother said Dihan called the girl to his house at Dolphin alley of Kalabagan around 11am on Thursday in the name of group study where she was raped.
As she was bleeding profusely, the accused took her to Anwer Khan Medical College Hospital where she was declared brought dead.
Meanwhile, victim’s father filed a murder case with Kalabagan Police Station early Friday.
A court also sent Dihan to jail after he made a confessional statement before it when police produced him before it seeking a 10-day remand.
Meanwhile, police said Dihan and Anushka had been in a relationship for two months.
