Rahima handed over to family after recording statement

Khulna: Khulna’s Rahima Begum, who remained “missing” for 29 days, was handed over to her family this evening after her statement was recorded in the court, reports UNB.

Khulna Chief Metro-politan Magistrate Court-2 Judge AL Amin recorded Rahima’s statement around 6:00pm.

Later, she was taken to her younger daughter Aduri Akter’s house in the city's Boyra area, said plaintiff’s lawyer Afruzzaman Tutul.

In her statement, Rahima provided detailed information on being “abducted over land dispute”.

She said she was abducted and taken to Chattogram. From there, she went to Faridpur on her own.

Earlier on Saturday night, police rescued Rahima from Boalmari upazila of Faridpur.

 “I was abducted by some unidentified men from in front of my house,”

Rahima claimed when she met her family members at the PBI office in Khulna.

“Golam Kibria and Md Mohiuddin, two people with whom Rahima was at loggerheads over land, had forcefully collected her signature on a blank paper and left her at a remote place with only Tk 1000,” Mushfiqur quoted Rahima.

Four-five people Rahima accused over her abduction in the statement were also accused in a case filed over her going missing, following a complaint received from her children.
