Nothing is being done to rescue her either, the family said.

Apan Sushil, the elder brother of the abducted student, complained that his younger sister was a 10th class student of GNA Missionary High School in East Bara Beola Union.

He said that his sister was being harassed Touhidul Islam (20) for some time.

He said that on the morning of May 26, when she went to fetch water from a tubewell a short distance from her house, Touhidul Islam and his accomplices forced his sister into a CNG autorickshaw and took her to an unknown place.

After this incident, Tauhid’s father, Masah and his relatives assured him that they would rescue his sister.

But as they were wasting their time, they approached the police station first. But when the police also did not take action, father Swapan Kumar Sushil filed a complaint in the court.

Although a case was registered in the police station on June 26 as per the court order, there has been no action from the police to find the girl.

Apan Sushil further said, ‘The investigating officer of the case, Sub-Inspector (SI) of Matamuhuri Police Investigation Center, Md. Hasan Mahmud told us to inform him if we got any news about my sister. If this is the attitude, then how can my sister be rescued.’

The girl’s father Swapan Kumar Sushil said, “Even after so many days, the police have not been able to rescue my daughter. My wife is bedridden with a stroke. I am seeking the intervention of the administration to rescue my daughter. I am feeling insecure at the threat of family members of influential scoundrels-terrorists who have filed lawsuits. I have already left my wife and children at my daughter’s house in the municipal town of Chiringa. ‘

In this regard, Chakaria Police Station OC Shaker Mohammad Jubayer said, “A case has already been registered in the police station on the direction of the court. Police are working to rescue the victim and arrest the accused.”

Bangladesh Hindus along with other religious minorities have been suffering systematic discrimination and violence in all areas of life in the Islamic state of Bangladesh for a long time. The population of Hindus has declined drastically since after independence.
