2 years on, Ctg realtor remains missing

Mozaffar Ahmed

The law enforcers have yet to trace Mozaffar Ahmed, a Chittagong businessman allegedly abducted two years back.
Owner of real estate firm Overseas Enterprise, Mozaffar went to Vat Club near his Agrabad residence in the port city at around 8:00pm on September 9, 2007, and did not come back.
Sumaiya Ahmed, daughter of the missing businessman, told The Daily Star yesterday, "It is agony not knowing if my father is alive or not. We have been going through the torment for two long years, and yet we see no flicker of hope."
Mozaffar's family filed a general diary with Double Mooring Police Station a day after he went missing. His wife Jahanara Ahmed filed an abduction case with the same station on September 13.
She accused six persons--Zakaria alias Mintu, customs officer Amin, businessman Moon, Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury, Jahangir Alam alias Kalacia and Zafar--of kidnapping her husband.
In the case statement, she said their family driver dropped Mozaffar at Vat Club, a club for customs officials.
Her husband was there with Zakaria, Amin and Moon till the early morning the following day.
She claimed Zakaria told her on phone that they had left the club for home between 4:00am and 4:30am.
Jahanara said Mamunur Rashid had a feud with her husband over a land on Badsha Mian Road at Panchlaish.
In October 2006, he threatened to have him killed by Jahangir and Zafar. Mozaffar filed a general diary at that time.
Police arrested all six named in the first information report. Of them, Mamunur was later released on bail.
The Criminal Investigation Department in Chittagong is now investigating the case.
Earlier, for two years, the police and its Detective Branch had probed Mozaffar's going missing but to no avail.
Investigation Officer and CID Inspector Abdul Gafur said he had already quizzed Mamunur Rashid and plans to have the other accused on remand.
"I'm hopeful we'll soon find a lead strong enough to crack the case," Gafur told The Daily Star.
The victim's family however is not much sure about sincerity of the investigators.
