More than 200 people – activists of Awami League, BNP and Jamaat – have been accused in a criminal case for their alleged involvement in the incident

Sirajganj Jamaat-e-Islami leader Alauddin Al Azad, who was snatched away from police by a mob led by an Awami League leader, has remained traceless until Tuesday evening.

More than 200 people – activists of Awami League, BNP and Jamaat – have been accused in a criminal case for their alleged involvement in the incident, said Ullapara police’s Inspector (investigation) Md Golam Mostofa.

So far, four suspects have been arrested but Azad, his cousin Awami League leader Saiful Islam Khoka, who led the mob, and others involved in the Monday afternoon incident are still missing.

Azad, accused in at least 20 cases, is the acting secretary of Jamaat’s Ullapara Upazila unit.

Mostofa said Saiful led a group of BNP-Jamaat and Awami League activists shouting ‘Joy Bangla’ and attacked police before snatching Azad, who was being brought to the police station handcuffed.

Ullahpara police station officer-in-charge (OC) Dewan Kawshik Ahmed said Azad was on his way to attend a Qulkhwani, which the BNP and Jamaat activists were using as a get-together event. 

“The snatching took place to put us in a tight spot as we foiled the event,” he claimed.
