Kidnapped minor School Student from Amratola-Chapra, Mongla, Bagerhat , Bangladesh

Date 29th March, 08
Report Submitted by HRCBM-BNC
According to the report about Amratola-Chapra, Mongla incident, HRCBM-BNC stated that due to continuous threat from the influential quarters, Parimal Roy (45), dirt poor and hapless father of a minority schoolgirl couldn’t file a case against the kidnappers of his daughter at the local police station. Nobody is speaking out against this crime fearing retribution, as the kidnappers come from a very powerful and influential family. Finding no other alternatives, Parimal, the poor and helpless father has decided to sell the ancestral home, his only material asset, and leave his village. This Sunday, Parimal expressed his grievance and helplessness in front of a group of journalists at the local press club.
As per Parimal, his minor daughter (16) is going to appear at this year’s S.S.C. (Secondary School Certificate) examination from the local Amratola-Chapra Secondary School . On the fateful evening of March 2,2008 when she went outside of her home in order to respond to nature’s call, she was abducted by a neighborhood hoodlum, Saiful Molla, son of Hai Molla, a powerful and wealthy local man. He used a motorcycle to abduct her. Two local young men named Tapas and Suman Mondal were the accomplices of this incident.
When Parimal Roy approached Abdul Hai Molla and their relatives on the following day in order to apprise him of this incident, they asked Parimal Roy to keep quiet. Subsequently, Parimal Roy again brought this incident to the notice of the guardians of the abductor and other villagers but to no effect. Failing to resolve this issue with Saiful’s guardians and being unable to file a case with the local police station for fear of revenge and retaliation, Parimal came to the press club and expressed his utter grief with the question “Will they do whatever they want to do to my daughter because I am a poor, helpless man?” while he broke down in tears. The report adds, since then she could not be traced, and the local police failed to do anything till today.
It is alleged that the police station refused take even simple FIR when her father Parimal Roy approached Bara babu'. The O/Cs are really 'Barab Babbus' (big bosses)- typical ‘don’t care’ attitude The published report is correct. Our contact persons confirmed the incident. on March 26,2008, the police recorded FIR, as we are told by our contacts. The police have now become a bit mobile and looking for the three culprits who really kidnapped the girl.
Our men approached the SP of Bagerhat A K M Shahidur Rahman . PPM, ( Tel:88-0469-62274 and 88-01713374116) and the OC of PS Mangla Mr Babul Akhtar ( 88-01713374129), a new incumbent. They assured us that the culprits would be brought to justice. Our 2-member team, comprising a former DIG police, visit the placedand enquire into case. A local layer has been assigned by HRCBM's Bangladesh National Chapter (HRCBM-BNC). However, we are doubtful of much progress in the case since police is allegedly prejudiced.
