A teenager has been tortured by BGP on false allegations of rape in Merulla, Maungdaw South.
On Monday, 15 year Anwar Sadek was arrested by the BGP on allegations of raping a 17 year woman.
Our sources however confirm the woman was forced into a sexual relationship with a local BGP commander who threatened to kill her father if she refused.
The woman is now four months pregnant. Neighbours have long known about the threats of the BGP commander and his nightly visits to the woman’s home.
The BGP commander advised the woman to marry the teenager and claim that Sadek had committed the rape.
Sadek was released on Wednesday after being continuously tortured.
