MP Anar’s daughter Mumtarin Ferdous Doreen filed a case in Dhaka’s Sherbangla Nagar police station on May 22 in this incident.

The MP’s daughter stated in the statement of the case, that on May 9, at around 8 pm, my father left for the village house Jhenaidhe from the house of the MP building on Manik Mia Avenue. On May 11 at 4:45 PM, talking to the father on a video call on the mobile phone, the father’s speech seems a little incoherent. After that, I called my father’s mobile phone several times and got it disconnected. On May 13, a WhatsApp message came from my father’s Indian number. The message read ‘I am going to Delhi suddenly, I have a VIP with me. No need to give me the phone. I will call you later’.

The statement also mentions that we keep searching for Baba in various places. Finding no trace, father’s friend Gopal Biswas made a general diary at the Barahnagar police station in Kolkata. Let’s continue to search for father. Later, I came to know through various media and social media that unknown persons had premeditatedly kidnapped the father. I did not find my father even after searching all possible places.

A few other messages also come. The messages could have been sent by the abductors using the father’s mobile phone, Doreen said in the statement.
