Monir claims Jewel Rana, Kamrul, Moniruzzaman and Masud kidnapped Abed, as they knew that he was carrying the money

A scrap cloth trader has been missing for a week, after he went out with his business partners to make a purchase on May 21.

Family members said trader Md Abed Ali, 28, owns a garment accessories and scrap cloth business at Mirpur 10 in Dhaka. After Abed went missing, his elder brother Monir Hossain filed a case with Ashulia police station on April 25, but police are yet find any trace of his whereabouts. 

According to the First Information Report (FIR), Abed went to meet with business partners Jewel Rana and Kamrul to buy scrap cloth at Jamgora, Ashulia on May 21, but did not return.

At 11:45am on the day, Abed phoned his elder brother and told him that he was going to buy scrap cloth from a storage facility behind Fantasy Kingdom at Jamgora. He was accompanied by Jewel Rana, Kamrul, Masud, Moniruzzaman and two others, and was carrying Tk6 lakh. 

At 4pm the same day, Monir tried to contact Abed by phone, but his phone was found to switched off. Monir then contacted Moniruzzaman and Masud, but they could not shed any light on Abed’s whereabouts.

Monir claims Jewel Rana, Kamrul, Moniruzzaman and Masud kidnapped Abed, as they knew that he was carrying the money.

Denying the allegations, Moniruzzaman told Dhaka Tribune: “Abed borrowed a lot of money from me as he was having some family problems. He lent the money to his brother in law. Abed might have gone into hiding as he does not want to pay me the money back.”  

Moniruzzaman further said he last spoke with Abed at 3:15pm on May 21, but could not reach him by phone afterwards.

Meanwhile, Kamrul said he was “surprised” when he heard he was one of the accused in the case over Abed going missing.

“I have a shop at Section 1 of Mirpur. I gave Tk2 lakh to Abed in advance to buy some products for me. I did not go to Jamgora with him that day [on May 21],” he added.

Ashulia police station OC Javed Masud said: “We are looking into to the matter. We have already found some clues, but cannot disclose them for the sake of the investigation. One person has already been arrested in connection with the case.”
