Fifteen years ago their father sent their mother, Rabia Begum out from the house. The two sisters grew up in a very neglected environment. Several years after the marriage of Sima Akther, she brought her younger sister Liza to live with her. Liza has been living with her for seven years. When Sima would go to her in law’s house, she occasionally leaves Liza at their father’s home.

On the 23rd of October 2012,  when Sima went to her in law’s house for celebrating eid she dropped Liza at her father’s house. In her father’s house, her step brother Kobir Hossain (a pseudonym) raped Lima and frightened her by threatening to kill her.

After Eid Sima brought Liza back to her home. A few days after returning home, Liza became sick, Sima took her to the doctor. When Liza did not recover after taking medication the doctor suggested some medical tests along with laser ultrasonography.
