Chattogram police on Monday rescued an eighth-grader, who allegedly left his Satkhira residence writing a "spiritual letter", from CEPZ intersection area of the port city.
Mohaiminul Islam, a student of Satkhira Govt High School, left his home at Manjitpur of Satkhira Sadar on Friday, said police. His father, Sayed Mohammad Mostafizur Rahman -- a police constable in Satkhira, filed a general diary with the local police station.
Deputy Commissioner Md Shahidullah of Counter Terrorism (CT) unit of Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) told  journalists "The boy was found loitering in the CEPZ area by EPZ police.
He was handed over to CT for interrogation."He told police that he came to the city to see Chattogram Port, but police were interrogating him, as he wrote a 'suspicious' letter to his family before leaving," the DC said.
The boy told police after leaving home, he boarded a Dhaka-bound bus at around 7pm, and later took a Chattogram-bound bus from Dhaka on Saturday morning. After arriving in Chattogram, he went to CEPZ area to see the port in the evening.
CT sources said the boy sought help from Assistant Sub-inspector (ASI) Moghul Hossain saying he lost some money. Later, the ASI quizzed him, and informed the matter to higher officials.
This correspondent spoke to Mohaiminul in custody. He said, "I have long wanted to see the port and ships. That's why I came here. But uncles have brought me here."
Additional Deputy Commissioner of CT unit Polash Kanti Nath said, "When asked about his trip to Chattogram, he initially tried to divert the police official's questions."
"After interrogation, he will be handed over to Satkhira Police," said the ADC.
