A general diary has been filed with Pallabi police station

It has been 19 days since a software engineer went missing in Dhaka.

On April 1, 31-year-old Kamrul Hasan left his residence in Mirpur Baruntek area for his office at Mirpur DOHS around 9:30am and has been traceless ever since, according to family members.

The next day, his father Rustam Ali, a former Air Force master warrant officer, filed a general diary (GD) with Pallabi police station.

According to the GD, Kamrul lived with his family and has a one-and-a-half-month old daughter.

On April 1, he told his wife over the phone around 10:45pm, that he had left his office and was returning home. But since then, his mobile phone remained switched off. He did not return home, according to the GD.

Kamrul’s father told Dhaka Tribune: “We still did not find my son, although we have contacted the Detective Branch and the Rapid Action Battalion.” 

“Contacted, Pallabi police said they were also looking for Kamrul,” he added.

Kamrul Hasan graduated from the department of applied physics of Dhaka University and had worked for a private organization for long.

However, Kamrul recently resigned from that company and started his own business, renting an office at Mirpur DOHS, said his father, adding: “Working for only 15 days in his office, he went missing.”

When contacted, Pallabi police station OC Nazrul Islam said  they have been trying their best to find Kamrul. “We are looking into the matter and an investigation is ongoing,” he added.
