Police, however, say they do not know anything about the incident.
Ahmed's wife Tahmina Akther told Dhaka Tribune that a group of seven or eight men in plainclothes came to their house at around 10:50pm on Tuesday.
“They did not have any arrest warrant. They merely told my husband to get ready and come with them for questioning,” she said.
“When he refused to comply, they dragged him to a white microbus and left,” Tahmina added.
The family rented the apartment several months ago.
Contacted, Dadon Fakir, officer-in-charge of Pallabi police station, told the Dhaka Tribune that they did not send anyone to pick up or arrest Ahmed.
He said no complaint had been filed with them regarding the incident.
DMP's Additional Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Yousuf told the Dhaka Tribune that he, too, was unaware of the matter but added that he would look into it.
