Police arrested three people, including a police constable, in connection with abduction of a businessman on Saturday.

Kotwali police officer-in-charge Abdur Rashid said police produced the three before a court on Saturday. The court ordered to send them to jail.

According to the police, Tosharaf Hossain, a businessman and also a resident of Hazaribag area in Dhaka city, came to Rangpur on January 11 in search of a domestic help. 

He sought help in this regard to a police constable, Rabiul Islam, posted at Rangpur Police Training Centre, who was earlier known to him. But the businessman remained missing since then.

On Thursday, his younger sister, Sajia Afrin Doly, filed a case with local police station in this regard.

Police held Rabiul Islam tracking mobile phone. Later, based on his confession, police arrested his brother-in-law Saiful Islam and house help Bipul.

The OC also said that police would appeal to court to put them on remand.

Police, however, could not rescue the missing businessman yet.
