Abducted trader Aniruddha Roy returns home after 81 days

  • Print

Aniruddha Kumar Roy, Managing Director of RMM Group, has returned home after 81 days keeping the law enforcement agencies apparently in the dark about the most mysterious adduction incident.  
Family members of Aniruddha, especially his wife Saswati Roy, remained tight lipped about his returning and also refrained from picking up telephone.
One of the victim's family members on Saturday said he was left by unknown persons in front of his house at about 3:30 am on Thursday. But he could not elaborate how Aniruddha returned or who left him there.
Aniruddha, who was also Belarus' Honourary Consul to Bangladesh, was abducted by the unidentified kidnappers from in front of Union Bank at Gulshan-2 in the city on August 27.
As per CCTV footage collected by the police, a gang of three had forced Aniruddha to get into a microbus and hurriedly escaped the scene.
When contacted, Deputy Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police [Diplomatic Zone Security] Md Jasin Uddin refrained from making any comment about the adduction incident which had occurred in the well secured Gulshan area.
Officer-in-Charge of the Gulshan Police Station Abu Bakar Siddique  told The New Nation on Saturday night, "We've heard from his nephew Kallol Hazra about Aniruddha's return in the small hours of Thursday. We're trying to talk to the victim to know the details."
When asked about the identity of criminals and progress of the abduction incident, the OC said: "Aniruddha's nephew filed a general diary with Gulshan Police Station after his abduction and we had launched an investigation in this connection. In fact, there is no progress in our investigation."     
According to information available, Aniruddha was among at least 10 victims including a university teacher who went missing from the capital since August last.
Driver of Aniruddha's car said he was forcibly taken by a microbus which was waiting there from earlier. "Two unknown persons talked to him [Aniruddha] when he was boarding his own car. Suddenly another one pushed him into the microbus and escaped the scene."
The incident of abduction created so much sensation that Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad had sought Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's intervention to rescue abducted Aniruddha and ensure his family's safety.
Meanwhile, the incidents of abductions and disappearance have increased in the recent days. Significantly, most of the incidents were allegedly occurred in the name of law enforcement agencies.
Surprisingly, the victims also do not open their mouths after their return.
