No trace of Akash yet

Police deny he is in their custody

Family members of Akash, who has allegedly been missing since early Saturday, yesterday said they were still clueless about the whereabouts of him.

Anju Parvin, wife of Akash, claimed at a press conference on Sunday that her husband was arrested on Thursday and picked up away from Thakurgaon Police Station on early Saturday.

She told the press conference that Akash, 33, and his brother-in-law Hamidur Rahman, 25, went to Thakurgaon town to appear before a court for the hearing of a drugs case on Thursday.

The two were arrested from different location of the city within hours after the hearing, she said, adding that Akash's younger brother Jahedul Islam visited them at the police station on Friday.

Meanwhile, Akash's nine-year-old son Atik told The Daily Star that his uncle Hamidur, informed him that some policemen took his father away by folding eyes with black clothes from the custody.

Atik went to the police station with his sister Alo to meet their father on Saturday.

Anju alleged that three policemen of Thakurgaon Police Station -- SI Anisur Rahman, SI Bhushan Chandra Barman and Constable Toslim -- had picked up the duo, however, Officer-in-Charge of the police station Ashikur Rahman strongly denied the claim.

The OC said he had a discussion with the three policemen and they rejected their involvement in the arrest of Akash.

The OC said, “Akash was accused in several cases filed with Pirganj and Haripur police stations and might be plotting a drama with some ill motives.”

However, he admitted that Hamidur was arrested with 10 bottles of Phensedyl from Baliadangi area on Saturday morning, not on Thursday, what Anju claimed.
