Noting that kidnappings and disappearances in Bangladesh are not new phenomenon, Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque on Friday said they were working to rescue those who remain missing.
"This (Disappearance and kidnapping) has been going on since the British era. This is happening now too. Have faith in us. We're working to rescue the missing people," he said while talking to journalists after attending a programme at Chandpur Police Lines.
The police chief claims his force has been working day and night to rescue missing people, including journalist Utpal Das, and private university teacher Mubashar Hasan Caesar.
"Police are working sincerely not only to prevent abductions, but all types of criminal activities," he said.
Police were usually able to unearth the mysteries behind such incidents after investigation, he claimed, though some incidents somehow remain unresolved.
"The mystery behind the incidents will be revealed once they're rescued," he said.
He claimed that the present law- and-order situation of Bangladesh is better than it was before.
