All eight missing teenagers have now been found by law enforcement officials

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Wednesday found the last three of eight girls who went missing from Dhaka’s Mirpur.

RAB 4 Commanding Officer (CO) Mozammel Haque said: “The girls went to Cox's Bazar. A team of RAB tracked them there. They returned to Dhaka on Wednesday morning and were found in the Beribadh area of Abdullahpur, Dhaka.”

After leaving their homes, their Facebook accounts were deactivated and mobile phones destroyed, according to the CO.

According to police, the three girls, aged 16-18, left their homes in college uniforms with a large sum of money, gold jewellery and their academic and birth certificates on Thursday. They have been missing since then.

RAB suspects the teenagers left their house willingly to visit Cox’s Bazar.

According to RAB, the girls claimed that a woman named Hafsa helped them to reach Cox’s Bazar. After their disappearance last Thursday, they were taken to Kamalapur first, via a car.

The elite force is yet to verify the teenagers’ claims.
