Police recovered the body 17 days after he was abducted

Police on Sunday recovered the body of a garment worker from the Buriganga River in Savar, who was killed as his family failed to pay Tk3 lakh ransom allegedly demanded by kidnappers.

The deceased identified as Rabbi Hossain, 21, son of Nur Hossain, lived in Savar's Hemayetpur area and worked in a local garment factory.

On November 26, Rabbi's neighbours Mamun and Rasel abducted him to a house in Hemayetpur and demanded Tk3 lakh as ransom. Drugs were used on him to render him unconscious, said sources from the police and the victim's family.

He began screaming upon regaining consciousness, when his abductors strangulated him to death. Subsequently the body was dumped in the Buriganga River, the sources added.

On Saturday night, Detective Branch of police used advanced technology to locate one of the abductors Rasel, in Kaunia area of Mymensingh district and held him, said Dhaka East DB police Officer-in Charge (OC) Nazmul Hasan.

The body has been sent to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital morgue for an autopsy and drives are being conducted to arrest the other involved Mamun, the OC added.
