Recently, a number of rapes, especially several cases involving minors, have shocked Bangladesh. A 10-year-old indigenous (Garo) child was raped in the capital’s Bhatara area on August 4 by a 22-year-old man. She was on her way to school when the rapist, a neighbour, lured her into a house, saying he would marry her, and then raped her.
