Rangpur Metropolitan Police (RpMP) rescued an abducted boy and arrested two kidnapers from Mozar Mour area in Syedpur upazila of Nilphamari on Sunday night, reports BSS. “The arrested abductors are Shahin Mian, 20, of Koyagolarhat Basuniapara and Rony Islam, 25, of village Purbo Belpukur Pakadhara in Syedpur upazila of Nilphamari,” RpMP Commissioner Abdul Alim Mahmud told a press conference held on Monday.
Earlier, the kidnappers abducted minor boy Ashik, 5, son of Kalu Mian from Alamnagar Kherbari area in Rangpur city on Saturday evening making him unconscious by pushing sedative medicine. After finding Ashik nowhere despite hectic search conducted at all possible places, his father filed a case in this connection with Tazhat Thana police of RpMP on Sunday.
By this time, the abductors demanded Taka one-lakh as ransom from parents of Ashik for his release alive threatening to kill him if their demand was not fulfilled. Later, parents of the victim informed the matter to RpMP when its Commissioner Abdul Alim Mahmud directed his Additional Deputy Police Commissioner (Crime) Shahidullah Kawser to rescue the abducted boy and arrest the criminals.
Taking the advantage of information and communication technologies, a special RpMP team led by Shahidullah Kawser rescued the abducted boy with assistance of Syedpur Thana police and arrested the two kidnappers from Syedpur last night. “During primary interrogation, the arrested kidnappers admitted their involvement with kidnapping the boy and demanding ransom from his parents,” Alim said adding that the rescued boy was handed over to his parents on Monday.
