Members of Rapid Action Battalion 1 rescued a six-year-old boy named Md Yeasin yesterday from Tetulzora area in Savar, four days after he was abducted from Babubazar area in Tongi, Gazipur.

They also arrested four of his abductors – Khadakar Jamil Hossain, 26, his wife Marufa Akhter, 23, Md Moktar

Hossain, 17, and Md Hridoy, 20, said Lt Col Tuhin Mohammad Masud, commanding officer of RAB 1.

“We started investigating when Yeasin’s father Amanullah filed a complaint of his son missing,” he said at a press briefing at RAB 1 office in Uttara.

“During investigation, we learnt that Marufa is an acquaintance of Amanullah, and using that familiarity she entered his house and abducted Yeasin.” 

Then the abductors went to Bikrampur in Munshiganj and called Yeasin’s father to demand Tk5 lakh in ransom.

Later they moved to Savar and rented a house to hide in, the RAB official said.

Following their ransom call, RAB laid a trap and led Jamil, Hridoy and Moktar to Tongi, where they went hoping to collect the ransom, and were arrested.

After interrogating the three, RAB raided the house in Savar, rescued Yeasin and arresting Marufa.
