Khulna District Chhatra Dal President Abdul Mannan has remained misding 48 hours after he was picked up from his house allegedly by detective police, his family said on Friday.
On Wednesday afternoon, some people in plain clothes picked him up from his rented house in the Nirala residential area of the city, said his niece Munni Khatun.
She said, “Eight men in plain clothes entered his rented house on Wednesday afternoon. They all had weapons. They picked up Mannan saying he would be released after questioning. We haven't been able to find him since then.”
Meanwhile, Manna’s family members and Chhatra Dal leaders went to different police stations and DB offices in Khulna to find the whereabouts of Mannan, said Gazi Shahidul Islam, organising secretary of Khulna District Chhatra Dal.
He said, “All those arrested before and after the blockade were sent to court within 7-8 hours. But the district Chhatra Dal president has not been sent to court even after 48 hours and that’s why we are concerned.”
Hasan Al Mamun, the officer-in-charge of Khulna Sadar Police Station said there has been no arrest of anyone by the name of Abdul Mannan.
Deputy Police Commissioner (DB) of Khulna, BM Nuruzzaman, also provided the same information.
