Former Rapid Action Battalion-7 commanding officer Hasinur Rahman, who lost his job and was jailed over his alleged extremist link in Chittagong, finally returned home on Friday night after 18 months.

Family sources said on Saturday that Hasinur Rahman returned but nothing could be known about the days he had been missing.

He was allegedly picked up by a group of people in a microbus at the highly secured Mirpur Defence Officer Housing Society when he was returning home on August 8, 2018.

Hasinur, upon his return, was unwilling to make any comment on the immediate past days. He said that he did not know where he was in the past 18 months.

His wife Shamima Akhter said, ‘We took him to a physician for his health check-up.’

Citing witnesses, Shamima told New Age that on the day he was picked up, a dozen of people were seen waiting near their rented apartment on road 10, avenue 4 in the DOHS about 10:00pm.
