Police have arrested a man accused of abetting the rape of his teenage daughter in exchange for a loan waiver in Dhaka's Kamrangirchar.
'Liton', 35, was apprehended in Betria Ghat on Tuesday night, said Kamrangirchar Police Inspector Mostafa Anwar.
Law enforcers have launched a manhunt for the perpetrator, identified as Abul Hossain, a local poultry trader.
The victim's mother lives abroad while her father supplied chicken to Abul Hossain's business, Mostafa told bdnews24.com. The father took a loan from Abul a year ago.
"When the victim's father failed to repay the loan, Abul sought to have a physical relationship with the girl in order to settle the debt. Liton agreed to the proposal and tortured the girl when she refused to take part in the arrangement. He later forced his daughter to engage in sexual activities with Abul by keeping her in captivity."
However, the girl later confided to a woman in the neighbourhood about the matter when the torture became unbearable. The woman called 999 for assistance before police rescued the girl and took her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
Police later arrested Liton based on the information given by his daughter but they are still looking for the Abul, said Inspector Mostafa.
