Police rescued a girl early Sunday in Moulvibazar several hours after she was kidnapped by a car driver and his accomplices.
Her family said that her father was undergoing treatment at Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital from where her maternal uncle, Zahirul Islam, sent her to his home in Bhairabganj area at Shrimangal upazila in the district at around 11:00pm on Saturday in a hired car.
Around half hour later, the girl made a phone call to him saying that the car driver was taking her towards an unknown place, Zahir said reporters, adding that he informed the Moulvibazar police of the matter instantly.
The district police additional superintendent Rashedul Islam told New Age that they began a drive at about 1:00am on Sunday and rescued the victim unhurt 3:00am from a tea garden at Mokambazar under sadar upazila in the district.
‘Four young men, including the car driver, were trying to violate the girl,’ the police officer said, adding the miscreant fled the scene sensing presence of the lawmen.
The sadar police officer-in-charge Alamgir Hossain told New Age that the car was seized from the spot and the victim’s family filed a case with the police in this regard.
‘Drive to arrest the car driver and his accomplices is going on,’ he added in the afternoon.
