A Cyclone Preparedness Program (CPP) volunteer has been rescued hours after being abducted from a Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar.

Members of Armed Police Battalion (APBn) rescued the volunteer from a hilly area inside the number 16 Shafiullah Kata Rohingya Camp in Ukhiya upazila early Thursday.

The volunteer, Md Hosain, a resident of Ukhiya upazila, was working at the camp when he was abducted on Wednesday evening by a group of Rohingya miscreants.
