An unidentified settler has attempted to rape a 13-year old Jumma girl in Nalkata under Baghaichari Upazila of Rangamati district.

The incident took place on 23 June about 8 a.m. when Ruma Chakma d/o Ananda Chakma went to a nearby stream to fetch water. Finding her alone, the settler, who is of 35 to 40 years of age, grabbed her.

As she screamed for help, the settler struck her with his dao (a one-edged sharp knife) leaving a cut-wound of a few centimeters deep in her right elbow. The settler had run away before the villagers reached the scene. The girl could not tell his name.

Ruma Chakma was then admitted to Baghaihat Health Complex.
