Ex-BCL leader 'picked up' from home

Family points finger at law enforcers; police deny role

Locals yesterday formed a human chain on Natore-Rajshahi highway demanding release of a former Chhatra League leader who was allegedly picked up by law enforcers in the early hours of the same day.

Around 1:00am, some plainclothes men introducing themselves as law enforcers picked up Jamil Hossain Milon, 30, son of Emdadul Haque Miazi, of the district's Sadar upazila, alleged his family members at a press conference in Natore Press Club.

Natore Sadar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Kazi Jalal Uddin, however, said they did not pick anyone up and were trying to find the missing man.

Missing Jamil was facing seven cases filed with the police station. Of those, one was filed under Special Powers Act, one over arms dealing and five others for extortions and fights, the OC added.

Jamil was a nomination seeker from the ruling Awami League for the chairman post in the upcoming Natore Sadar Upazila Parishad election. He was known as a follower of Natore-2 lawmaker Shafiqul Islam Shimul.
