AN abduction case was filed Tuesday against two officials of elite force Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) and two officials of Dhaka Central Jail with a Dhaka court.

The accused are Flight Lieutenant Mohammad Emon and Deputy Assistant Director Mohammad Harun of Rab-10, Senior Jail Super Mohammad Towhidul Islam and Deputy Jailer Mohammad Imran Hossain.

Advocate Mohammad Khabir Uddin filed the case with the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court against the accused on charges of kidnapping his son Towfiq Ahmed alias Hassan, a student of Cambrian College, on May 13.

After the hearing, Metropolitan Magistrate MA Salam recorded statement of complainant and ordered a judicial inquiry into the matter.

In his complaint, Khabir Uddin alleged that his son was arrested on February 21 from in front of his Ramna residence for his alleged links with militants and later he was granted bail from the High Court on May 4.

Following the HC bail order, Towfiq was released from the Dhaka Central Jail on May 13 and the complainant was present there to receive his son. But Towfiq was picked up by a group of plain-clothes law enforcers from in front of jail gate soon after his release. Since then complainant’s son has been missing.

Later the complainant came to know from different sources including policemen posted at the jail gate that his son was picked up by members of Rab aided by jail authorities, Khabir added.

The complainant appealed to the court for taking into cognisance the complaint against the accused responsible for kidnapping and hiding his son and give exemplary punishment to the kidnappers.

Khabir also prayed for rescuing his son.
