Police accused of demanding ransom from two businessmen in Feni
Two businessmen have alleged that they were confined for three days at Koraish Munshi police outpost in Feni's Dagonbhuiyan upazila and were threatened for ransom. Amjad Hossain and Sohel Ahmed said they were detained by the police outpost's in-charge Sub-Inspector (SI) Saiful Islam Tuesday evening from Abdur Nabi village and were released on Thursday after paying Tk40,000 in ransom. Denying the allegations SI Saiful Islam said the pair was held on Wednesday for riding unlicensed motorbikes. "After inspecting if they were accused in any case, we released them at Thursday noon," the SI said. While talking to the Dhaka Tribune, Amjad and Sohel said they were neighbours and were travelling together on separate motorbikes to see their relatives in Abdur Nabi village. On their way, SI Saiful stopped them and took them to the police station along with their bikes, the duo added. Amjad said: "The SI demanded Tk200,000 from us and even threatened us that they would accuse us in different cases if we failed to pay up. "The SI was not convinced when we told him we were not financially capable of paying such a huge amount. "Later, a former Union Parishad (UP) member contacted our family members and collected Tk40,000 from them, which was then given to the SI." Following the ransom payment we were released and we were further threatened by the SI about getting accused in several cases and being harmed if we spoke out. Dagonbhuiyan police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abul Kalam Azad said: "We did not receive any such complaints yet, but we are investigating the matter." While talking to the Dhaka Tribune, the former UP member Abul Kashem said Amjad and Sohel’s family members requested him to get the duo released , so helped them getting released.
