The son of missing IT professional Ataur Rahman Shahin today pleaded to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her direction on the authorities concerned to take necessary steps for returning his father.
“Please bring back my father to me. He has been missing for two months,” said nine-year-old Tashdeed Aan Nafee, a student of class-four at European Standard School in Dhaka’s Mirpur.
The family members of Shahin talked to journalists at a press briefing held at Sagar-Runi Auditorium of Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the capital this morning.
Addressing the briefing, Shahin’s pregnant wife Tania Akhtar said her husband was abducted by unidentified people from near his office in Tejgaon Industrial Area on May 2 evening.
“Since then, two months have passed and Shahin has still remained traceless,” she said.
“Now every moment seems longer than a thousand years without him. I have a small child and I am also pregnant with our second child now, and in this circumstance, I am living an uncertain life with my husband remaining traceless.”
After Shahin went missing, a general diary was filed with Tejgaon Industrial Area Police Station on May 2 night and later a case was filed with the police station on May 4, she said.
Police found in a CCTV camera footage that several unidentified persons abducted Shahin by forcing him to get in a white microbus.
“I have met with the speaker and deputy speaker of the Jatiya Sangsad, the home minister, and many high officials of police, but no trace of Shahin could be found yet,” Tania said.
“As far as I know, my husband did not have any professional enmity or family feud with anyone.”
“I am pleading to Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to direct the law enforcers and concerned authorities to take steps for finding my husband and returning him to his family safely for the sake of a better life for his unborn child,” he added.
