Lt Col (sacked) Hasinur Rahman, a former commanding officer of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab), returned home last night—over 18 months after he went missing.
His wife, Shamima Akhter, confirmed to The Daily Star that her husband returned to their home last night around midnight
"We took him to our flat when the security guard of our building conveyed the news of his return to us," Shamima said.
Hasinur could not say anything about his whereabouts during the time that he had been missing, said Shamima.
Expressing relief over the return of her husband, Shamima said the family members were not pressing him with further questions, as he was speaking incoherently.
"We will take him to doctor today," she added.
Hasinur was sacked from the army and stripped of his rank for his alleged links to militancy and was reportedly picked up by 14 to 15 men in plainclothes around 10:30pm on August 8, 2018, when he was on his way home after meeting his friends.
Family members have denied allegations of Hasinur's connection with militants, saying he was an honest and patriotic officer.
They also claimed he became a victim of conspiracy.
