Dhaka Tribune

No trace of Salahuddin in two months

Update : 09 May 2015, 10:41 PM

Two months into the disappearance of BNP leader Salahuddin Ahmed, the law enforcement agency is yet to make any headway in the case.

Family members of the BNP joint secretary general expressed their suspicion about whether Salahuddin was still alive or if it was another case like the disappearance of BNP leader M Ilias Ali.

Salahuddin’s wife Hasina Ahmed said law enforcers used to contact them frequently after the disappearance happened, but with each passing day they seemed to be becoming nonchalant.

When asked, SM Jahangir Alam Sarker, acting deputy commissioner of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, yesterday told the Dhaka Tribune that they did not lack any sincerity to locate Salahuddin.

“Senior officials are aware of it, and our efforts to trace him are continuing,” he added.

On April 20, following a writ petition by Hasina Ahmed, a High Court bench directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to continue the search efforts for the next six months and to submit a monthly report on the progress made.

Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, State Minister of Home, said law enforcers were still looking for Salahuddin and they would continue to do so.

On March 10,  Salahuddin went missing from a house in Uttara. His family claimed that he was picked up by law enforcers.

However, law enforcement agencies, including police, CID and Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), have claimed ignorance of Salahuddin’s whereabouts.

Almost in the same way, On April 17, 2012, BNP Organising Secretary Ilias Ali, disappeared while he was on his way home. He remains missing to date.
