Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali’s son Mir Ahmed Bin Quasem, also a lawyer, has been picked up by civilian dressed men from his residence on Tuesday night, according to his family.
His wife Tahmina Akhtar told the Prothom Alo that after the calling-bell of their Mirpur DOHS house rang around 11:00pm, they opened the door and found five people standing.
“They enquired about my husband. By this time, my husband came to the scene and they told him to go along them,” claimed Tahmina Akhtar.
She said the five people did not disclose their identities even after repeated requests.
“When my husband declined to go along with them, they dragged him to the downstairs.”
Tahmina alleged that they put her husband into a big microbus and went away.
When contacted, Pallabi police station officer-in-charge Dadan Fakir said they have no information about the incident and the arrest of Ahmed Bin Quasem.
