Rapid Action Battalion on Thursday night released freedom fighter Habibul Alam Bir Pratik hours after picking him up from his office at New Eskaton in Dhaka.
Lieutenant Colonel Sarwar Bin Kasem, commanding officer of RAB 1, told New Age that Habibul was released at 8:50pm.
He said the force picked up Habibul to question him connection with a fraudulent activity of an international gang involved with money laundering.
RAB claimed that the gang was found using Habibul Alam’s phone number in deceiving people.
Habibul too might have been deceived used by the quarter, claimed Sarwar.
Habibul Alam, however, could not be contacted so far.
Habibul’s daughter Tahsin Alam told New Age in the evening that a group of people riding on two microbuses and two Prado SUVs came to his father’s office Information Services Network Limited (ISN), an internet service provider, at TMC Building at Eskaton at around 1:15pm and took him in.
Tahsin said one of their cars followed the four vehicles and it found that the four vehicles entered the office of Rapid Action Battalion 1.
She said they went to Ramna police station to file a general diary but they refused to record it without primary investigation. ‘Police have visited ISN office and we are going to file a general diary,’ she said.
