A fish trader was rescued yesterday, an hour after his abduction from Satai Amlai village in Jashore's Sharsha upazila.
He sustained serious injuries in an attack allegedly by the men of a local money lender.
Injured Mukter Gayan, 40, son of Abul Gayan of the village, is now undergoing treatment at Jashore 250-bed General Hospital.
Moshiur Rahman, OC of Sharsha Police Station, said four years ago, Mukter took a loan of Tk 2 lakh from Tanoy Pearl.
Mukter paid off the loan within two years, but failed to pay interest of the loan money.
Recently, it was decided to pay interest of the loan money very soon. The decision was taken at a meeting between Mukter and Tanoy held in presence of the Goga union parishad chairman.
Around 8:00am yesterday, a group of 10 to 12 men of Tanoy, equipped with firearms, picked up Mukter from his house to get back the interest money.
About an hour after the abduction, Mukter was left abandoned in the area in a pool of blood. On information, police went to the spot and rescued Mukter.
