A sixth-grade school girl, kidnapped two months ago from Dimla upazila in Nilphamari, was rescued from Savar in Dhaka on Monday.
A team of Nilphamari police with the help of Savar police rescued the girl and arrested the prime accused from a house in Nabinagar village, said Mafizuddin Sheikh, officer-in-charge (OC) of Dimla Police Station.
Police took the girl and the arrestee to Nilphamari and placed her in her father's custody, he added.
The arrestee, Kartik Das, 19, son of Nirmal Das from Puran Kancharipara village in Hatibandha upazila of Lalmonirhat, was sent to jail custody after he was produced before senior judicial magistrate's court in Nilphamari.
On January 7, Kartik and three others kidnapped the schoolgirl in a microbus while she was on way back to her home after school in Dimla, according to a case filed the same day by her father.
Even though the kidnappers took the girl to Dhaka and changed location frequently, police detected their location by tracking Kartik's cellphone, said OC Mafizuddin, adding that they were looking for the other three accused.
