Rezaul Haque, driver of expatriate BNP leader Mujibur Rahman both of who were released yesterday over three months into their abduction, was found in Dhaka today hours after he went missing again.

Police were taking Rezaul to Sunamganj, their home district from where they were kidnapped, Harun-Or-Rashid, Sunamganj superintendent of police, told The Daily Star at 4:00pm.

Mujibur, 56, is the former vice-president of Sunamganj unit and UK chapter of main opposition party BNP.

He went missing on May 4 along with his driver Rezaul, 30, after the BNP leader attended the opposition's hunger strike held in Sunamganj town to protest the recent incidents of abduction, killing and forced disappearances.

Abductors released Mujibur and Rezaul in Tongi, Gazipur yesterday morning.

Family sources said the kidnappers dropped off the two near a bridge in Tongi on the outskirts of the capital, Dhaka. They then reached Mujibur's Gulshan home in an auto-rickshaw.

Mujibur, who was undergoing treatment at the capital's United Hospital, asked Rezaul to go back to Sunamganj the same day. But Rezaul went missing later on.
