It was Sunday night around 10:00 pm. Renowned actor Rosy Siddiqui was returning after her regular shoot for the drama serial Maan Obhimaan from Zirabo, near Ashulia. She was commuting in her personal vehicle. After reaching Mirpur's Beribadh area, there was a sudden loud noise that came from underneath the car. When her chauffeur got down to inspect the matter, Rosy followed.
Immediately, a band of armed robbers wielding machetes pulled Rosy to a corner and tried to snatch all her jewelry. One of them placed the blade upon her throat and threatened to kill her if she made any noise. Out of fear, she surrendered all her valuables while pleading for her life. The thugs then went to the car to loot whatever they could, including her purse, and disappeared into the darkness of the night.
Soon the frightened actor informed her spouse, prominent actor Shahiduzzaman Selim about the horrific incident, along with her colleagues in the entertainment industry. She also filed a case at the Rupnagar Police Station. The officer-in-charge showed her a few photos of criminals, from which she was able to identify one of the robbers.
Rosy Siddiqui informed that such incidents are common to the Mirpur's Beribadh area, especially due to the lack of street-lighting. She acknowledged that safety is a basic human right and the authorities should assure it with proper vigilance.
