Families seek info of five boys picked up on Sept 12 night


Dhaka, Sept – Family members of five missing boys on Saturday demanded immediate whereabouts of their children as they have remained traceless since 12 September night after being picked up by plainclothesmen from Airport and Jatrabari areas.“ If they have violated any law of the land, produce them before the court to bring them under the justice,” said Ramisa Khanam, mother of Shafiul Alam and Monirul Alam, at a press conference at Crime Reporters Association of Bangladesh (CRAB) in the city’s Segun Bagicha on Saturday. Shafiul is an appendix lawyer of Dhaka Bar and Manirul is a private service holder.
She said she landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on September 12 evening after performing Hajj. Her two sons– Shafiul Alam and Monirul Alam and one of her younger son’s friend Abul Hayat went to the airport to receive her. Hayat is a private service holder.
When they were about to leave the airport boarding a microbus for their village home in Tangail at around 8:30 pm, a group plainclothes men pulled out Shafiul, Monirul and Hayat from the microbus introducing themselves as DB police showing ID cards and firearms, Ramisa said adding they (DB police) left the place taking away the trio in a micro bus.
Plainclothesmen in the same night also went to a Mirhazirbagh mess in Jatrabari, where her two sons used to stay, and also picked up Safiullah, and Mosharaf Hossain Maaz, two roommates of her son and left the place. Safiullah is a student of Dhaka College and Mosharaf Hossain Maaz a class IX student.
We have been trying to know of their whereabouts contacting various police stations and DB police but in vain as they (law enforcers) denied knowledge of detaining them, Ramisa Khanam said.
“We are deeply concerned as we are yet to get any information about their whereabouts. If our children are really involved in any crime, then they should be brought to justice by producing them in the court,” she said.
She urged human rights organizations at home and abroad including, the National Human Rights Commission to raise their voice so that their sons get legal support.
