Abdullahil Aman Azmi, son of war criminal and ex-Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Ghulam Azam, was allegedly picked up by some unidentified men from his Boro Moghbazar residence in the capital last night.
Abul Kalam Azad, personal manager of Ghulam Azam's wife, said this to The Daily Star early today.
Private Television Channel Ekattor also reported the incident, citing Ghulam Azam's lawyers.
However, Mashiure Rahman, officer-in-charge of Ramna Police Station, and Shiblee Noman, assistant commissioner (Ramna zone) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said they knew nothing about it.
According to Azad, some 25-30 men came to the house at 119/2 Kazi Office Lane in Boro Moghbazar around 9:00pm, and inquired him about Azmi.
“I told them that I didn't know because I was not at the house the whole day. They then started beating me up,” Azad told The Daily Star.
The men later entered the eight-storey building and searched all apartments. They found Azmi in one of the apartments, blindfolded him and took him with them around 11:30pm, claimed Azad.
Earlier on August 9, Ahmed Bin Quasem, son of top Jamaat leader and convicted war criminal Mir Quasem Ali, was allegedly picked up by some unidentified men from his Mirpur DOHS home in the capital.
Hummam Quader Chowdhury, son of executed war criminal Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, was also reportedly picked up by unidentified men from a court compound in the city on August 4.
