Boy abducted a month ago yet to be rescued

A schoolboy abducted for ransom from Bahirgola area in the town a month ago is yet to be rescued.
Although police have arrested four people, they failed to gather any clue to the whereabouts of Sampad Kumar Shil alias Tanmoy, 13, a class six student of Janadayinee High School in the town.
Tanmoy's father Swapan Kumar Shil is a local rice trader.
Victim's family sources said, a gang picked up Tanmoy on June 9 from their backyard when he was standing there at around 8.00 pm after power outage.
The next day, the abductors demanded Tk 5 lakh as ransom over cell phone and threatened to kill the boy if his parents fail to pay the amount. The abductors also warned them of dire consequences of informing the matter to police.
Victim's uncle Bidhan Chandra Shil, also a rice trader, lodged a case with Sirajganj Sadar police station in this connection on June 11.
The officer-in-charge (OC) of the police station asked SI Moshiur Rahman to investigate the case. But the victim's family members alleged little progress in investigation saying there is hardly any move yet to rescue the boy.
Contacted, OC Azad, however, told the Daily Star that police have already arrested four suspected people in this connection and are trying to rescue Tanmoy.
Meanwhile, the victim's family members expressed the fear that the abductors may kill the boy for non-payment of ransom. They demanded immediate move to rescue Tanmoy and arrest the abductors.
