"He has a prior criminal record from an arrest seven years ago. He was arrested with an accomplice for abducting a teenager. They asked for Tk800,000 in ransom. A case had been filed against him on February 22, 2012. The police rescued the victim of kidnapping a little over a month later on March 24. Palash was in jail for 20 days before he was let out on bail," the RAB spokesperson said.
