ABN group MD Syed Sadat Ahmed abducted, family say23 August 2017 bdnews24.com
ABN Group Managing Director Syed Sadat Ahmed has been abducted from Banani in Dhaka, his family say.
He was forced out of his car and into a microbus under the Banani overpass on Tuesday afternoon, according to his father Col (retd) Syed Sahabuddin Ahmed.
The police suspect his business rivals maybe behind the abduction.
“His relatives have come to the station. We are trying to trace his location,” said Cantonment Police Station OC Md Mahbubur Rahman.
Sadat Ahmed was driving his car with his son Mehedi Zaman and a caretaker, his father said. “A microbus blocked their way under Banani overpass at 3pm.
“Some people got out of the microbus and forced Sadat inside their vehicle,” his father said.
One of his abductors then started driving Sadat’s car while Mehedi and his caretaker were still inside. Following the microbus, he took the vehicle across 300-feet road and ended up in Purbachal.
The man disembarked from Sadat’s car at Purbachal and told Mehedi that his father will be returned in 15 minutes, and took away his cell phone.
The microbus, where Sadat was, was then driven away towards Narayanganj, said Shahabuddin, quoting grandson Mehedi.
