Update : 17 Apr 2014, 06:52 PM

A Dhaka University student who went missing from Fuller Road on Tuesday evening was found in the capital’s Panthapath area yesterday morning.

Azizul Haq Khan Kanak, also an activist of Gonojagoron Moncho, was found lying on a bench of a tea stall in the area around 10:45 am.

Sub-Inspector of Shahbagh police station Kazi Shariful Islam told the Dhaka Tribune that they along with victim’s brother-in-law Sohel Parvez went to Panthapath area following a phone call made by a tea stall owner and found him unconscious on the bench of the tea stall.

Later, Kanak was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) for treatment, the SI added.

Sohel Parvez said, “A tea vendor phoned me around 10:30am and asked me whether I was Kanak’s brother. Later, they told me that Kanak was found there unconscious.”

Sohel along with police went to the spot and found Kanak lying on the bench. There were injury marks in his head and bloodstains on his dress.

‘Computed Tomography (CT) scan has been done, but he had not major injuries,’ the on-duty doctor said.

Kanak said he was going to his sister’s house at Lalbagh after teaching his student. A gang standing near a shop passed comments, calling him an atheist while he was passing through Fuller Road. At a stage, they picked him up in a car, blindfolded and tortured him. They left him on the spot on Wednesday night.

Kanak, also an activist of Bangladesh Chhatra Union, said the gang members tried to make fun with him and tortured him until they set him free. But he could not recognise any of them.
