Plainclothesmen pick up owner of Lakehead Grammar School

21 January 2018

Unidentified people have taken away Lakehead Grammar School owner Khaled Hassan Matin from his office in Dhaka.
The education ministry in November ordered the school to be closed over charges of harbouring militancy and inspiring extremism. The Supreme Court later ordered the school to be reopened with a new board of directors comprised of the Dhaka Divisional Commissioner as chair and military officials as board members.
An official of the school said seven to eight persons in plainclothes came to Matin's Gulshan offices on Saturday and took him away, Gulshan Police Inspector Salauddin Miah told
"Police immediately began investigating the scene after being informed. But, as of Saturday evening, the school has not filed a formal complaint."
The police are searching for Matin's whereabouts, Salauddin said.
