Senior Reporter: RAB said it had rescued three college students who went missing five days ago from Pallabi in the capital’s Mirpur.
RAB-4 Deputy Commander Major Ravi Khan said the three girls were rescued from the Mirpur embankment area on Tuesday night.
“They will be handed over to their families shortly,” he told on Wednesday afternoon.
However, the RAB official did not immediately provide any information on how they were found or whether they were abducted.
The three girls are twelfth-class students of three colleges in the Mirpur-Pallabi area and each other’s girlfriends. Last Thursday morning, they left home to go to college and did not return, so the family started looking. It was later learned that they all left the house with money, jewelry, and school certificates.
One of them filed a case with Pallabi police station on October 2 alleging abduction of a student’s sister.
The idea of the family is to show their temptation and ask them to leave home with money and jewelry for smuggling abroad.
After receiving the complaint, the police arrested four friends of the three students. One of them is in remand and the other three are in jail.
Arrested Rakib in jail
Rakibullah, who was arrested in a kidnapping case filed after three students went missing, has been sent to jail after remand.
On Wednesday, the investigating officer of the case, Pallabi Police Station SI Sajib Khan, produced the accused Rakibullah in court and asked him to keep him in jail.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahinur Rahman then ordered the accused to be sent to jail. Maqboolur Rahman informed.
Rakibullah, one of the four accused arrested in the case on October 3, was remanded for two days.
Police also wanted to remand one of the arrested girls and three others. However, the judge decided that the hearing would be held after determining their age.
