Rahima Disappearance: PBI report likely by October

The law enforcers are waiting for information from a leading mobile financial service provider in the country over some transactions made through Rahima’s phone number

Update : 17 Oct 2022, 10:02 PM

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) is likely to submit the probe report in a case filed after the disappearance of a woman named Rahima Begum in Khulna within October. 

The law enforcers are waiting for information from a leading mobile financial service provider (MFSP) in the country over some transactions made through Rahima’s phone number. 

Syed Mushfiqur Rahman, superintendent of police in Khulna PBI, said that once the police receive the necessary information from the MFSP they will be able to submit the probe report.  

“We are hopeful that we will be able to submit the report within this month,” the officer said. 

Rahima, whose family claimed she went missing, reappeared after 29 days on September 24, but not before her family members had filed a case and six people were arrested. 

Police initially suspected that she had left her home due to some family dispute over land.   

The entire incident got diverted when her daughter Moriom Mannan claimed to have traced her dead body on September 22.

However, the police rescued her from a house in Faridpur on September 24.

When asked about Rahima Begum going missing again, the PBI officer said that they had handed her over to the family and therefore the law enforcers were not responsible for her whereabouts. He said that the police had not heard anything regarding the woman going missing again. 

Syed Mushfiqur Rahman said that Rahima’s son Meraz Al Sadi had come to the PBI office and alleged that his mother went into hiding herself. Sadi had given a confessional statement before a court, the PBI officer said. 

He also said that they are suspecting Rahima’s husband Bellal Ghatak might have had links to the entire incident. 

Bellal Ghatak alias Belal Howladar, who was arrested on September 12, is still in jail in the case.
