Preacher missing for three days: family
Young Islamic preacher Abu Taw Haa Muhammad Adnan, his driver and two companions have been missing for three days, according to his family members.
"Adnan last spoke to his wife over phone at 2:37am on Friday and told her he reached the capital's Gabtoli. Since then he could not be communicated," said his brother-in-law Abu Hanif.
Hanif said they were coming to the capital from Adnan's Rangpur home in a car. Adnan's wife Sadekunnahar, however, around 9pm yesterday on Facebook live alleged that they went to Darussalam Police Station multiple times in the last two days and tried to file a GD but police did not cooperate with them.
Contacted, Mahtab Uddin, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (Mirpur division), said Adnan's family verbally informed them of the matter and police inquired about it.
He said they have asked the family to go to the police station concerned and file a complaint, but they are yet to do so. "Possibly, they know where Adnan is and that's why they didn't do it," Mahtab told The Daily Star yesterday.
Meanwhile wishing anonymity, a police official hinted that Adnan may have been picked up by an agency over his Facebook posts
