Beauty, 16, went missing from Habiganj on March 16 and police recovered her body the next day.
The teenage girl, was stalked and harassed on her way to work by Babul Mia and his accomplices. After she complained about the harassment, she was kidnapped from her home, taken to an unidentified place where she was kept hostage for a month (January 21–Febraury 21), and raped by Babul Mia, according to a Source.
Later, the victim's father Sayed Ali, a day labourer, filed a rape and abduction case against 11 people including Babul Mia and his mother, who is a local UP member, with Habiganj Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal.

On March 16, Babul reportedly kidnapped her again and raped her and killed her. Later, the body was left in a haor in the area, according to a Source.
