Police have rescued a 50-year-old woman from Munshiganj who was ‘abducted’ two days ago from Dhaka’s Mohammadpur. Several arrests have been made over the ‘abduction’.
The kidnappers called up the family and demanded Tk 100,000 for Lucky’s release after she went missing on Monday.
Police’s Tejgaon Zone Deputy Commissioner Biplob Kumar Sarkar said, Lucky, a singer, was rescued on Tuesday midnight from Gajaria.
“A number of people have been nabbed from Dhaka and Gajaria over the incident. We will be able to find out why she was abducted when we question them.”
The police official however declined to provide further details on the arrests or who were being suspected.
Lucky’s brother ‘Arif’ told bdnews24.com that Lucky went to her friend’s residence a little distance from her home in Adabor on Monday.
Around noon, she got a call on her cellphone asking her to go to Dhaka Uddyan area.
She left the house and a while later called her friend saying she was being abducted by unknown people in a microbus.
The phone was switched off after that, he added.
Arif says their sister ‘Fatema’ was called up and Tk 100,000 was demanded as ransom.
The callers threatened to harm Lucky if the money was not paid.
He filed a general diary with the police and Mohammadpur police OC Jalal Uddin Mir said they started looking for her on Tuesday based on the complaint.
