A student of Al-Quran and Islamic studies department of Islamic University in Kushtia was found alive on Thursday after five days of his missing.

The student was Abdullah Al-Mamun, 24, son of Siddique Mollah, resident in Satkhira.

According to his family members, three unidentified miscreants dropped Mamun at Trishmail area in Satkhira at around 5:00am. He could not recognise the persons as he was blindfolded.

On his way to home, Mamun was waiting for a Satkhira-bound bus at Jashore bus stand. Some three men offered him a trip on their microbus there. Mamun could not say anymore after getting on it, his father Siddique Mollah said.

The miscreants later demanded Tk 40,000 ransom from his family members and they sent Tk 5,000 to a bKash number.

Mamun’s health condition was not well, his father added.

IU police station officer-in-charge Raton Sheikh told New Age that they were trying to arrest the miscreants.            

Earlier, Mamun went missing from Jashore on Saturday while he was returning home from Kushtia.

A general diary was filed with IU police station in this regard.
