Police have failed to find out any clue behind the mysterious disappearance and death of the Dutch-Bangla Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DBCCI) president Md Hassan Khaled, whose body was found in the Buriganga River four days after he had gone missing.
Even they have failed to identify the truth whether the business leader was murdered after he had left his Dhanmondi residence on July 23.
Quoting his family members, police said Md Hassan Khaled left home around 9:00am on July 23 (Saturday) to buy medicines from a nearby shop but did not return.
The family members could not reach him by phone, as it was found switched off.  They looked for him in different areas of the capital. Failing to trace him, his brother-in-law Shariful Alam filed a general diary (GD) with Dhanmondi Police Station around 1:00am on the day.
Hassan (55) was the resident of House 45 on Road 4/A in Dhanmondi residential area.
He had been residing on the third floor of the six-storey building over the last three years with his wife and daughter.
"It's a high-profile case we are trying hard to uncover the mystery of the incident. The case has already been to Detective Branch (DB) police for investigation," Noor-a-Azam Miah, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Dhanmondi Station told The New Nation on Sunday.
According to him, a case has been filed in this regard with the police station on August 6.
When asked, the OC said, the preliminary report of the autopsy failed to reveal the cause of death. Police are waiting for the viscera report. It can help ascertain the cause of death and new lead to the case.
"My husband remained depressed for several months as his business was not going well. He borrowed Tk50 lakh from a private bank and he was in mental pressure to pay back the loan," Dilara Khaled, wife of the businessman, told The New Nation yesterday.
He went to a psychologist for medication and the doctor advised him to take some medicines. He was taking medicines as per the advice of the doctor.
"My husband went out from our house on the fateful morning to buy medicines but since then he did not returned," she added. When asked, Dilara said that as per her knowledge Hassan did not have previous enmity with anyone or he did not borrow big amount from his friends. Even he did not receive any threat from any quarters over any issue.
"I cannot suspect anyone for his disappearance and death," she said.
Meanwhile, the leaders of DBCCI have sought proper investigation into the death of its president Md Hassan Khaled.
"We are shocked by the mysterious death of our leader. It needs proper investigation," a DBCCI leader told The New Nation on Sunday, requesting not to be named.
He said: "We feared that he may be abducted and later killed by unidentified assailants. Panic and fear have gripped business community after the incident".
