A Dhaka court yesterday directed police to interrogate college student Azizul Khan Rafi for one day at jail gate, in a case filed over attempting to kidnap a first-year student of Jagannath University (JnU) and demanding Tk 80,000 as ransom from him.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Dhiman Chandra Mondol passed the order after Sub-Inspector Atoar Hossain produced accused Rafi, a student of Kabi Nazrul Government College, before the court with a five-day remand prayer.
JnU Islamic Studies department student Zakaria Islam on Monday filed the case with Kotwali Police Station. Other than Rafi, five others were accused in the case, three of who are JnU students.
Zakaria also filed a written complaint to JnU administration over the incident the same day.
“Three of the six accused tried to kidnap me near the main entrance of JnU around 11am on Monday. I was saved from their hands thanks to intervention of nearby students,” Zakaria told The Daily Star last night.
Contacted, Proctor of the university Mostofa Kamal said, “Authorities received a complaint from Zakaria Islam... stern action will be taken if any student of the university is found guilty in the incident.”
