Law enforcement officials suspect Enamul may have orchestrated the incident himself

Police are yet to find any trace of the missing United International University (UIU) student who reportedly went missing from Dhaka on Tuesday morning.

On Thursday, Badda police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rafiqul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune: “Victim Enamul Haque Olen’s last known location was a resort in Munshiganj district's Gazaria area, but he was not found there.”

The OC added that they are yet to ascertain if the student was abducted or went into hiding on his own.

According to the general diary (GD) filed by the Enamul’s mother Fatema Nizam on Wednesday, her son left their home in Mohammadpur for the UIU campus in Badda on Tuesday morning, and did not return.

Enamul’s phone has been switched off since Tuesday morning. At night on the same day, Fatema received a phone call demanding Tk10 lakh in ransom for her son. The caller also told her that Enamul was alright and that she should not contact the police.

Fatema said her husband is an expatriate in Saudi Arabia, and they had no idea who could do such an act. She also learned that Enamul was not in the custody of any law enforcement agencies.

The OC said: “We suspect that the phone call was orchestrated by Enamul. Everything will be clear as soon as we find him. We are also trying to find out if he had any problem with his family. Right now, we are not treating the GD as an abduction case.”

The OC added that Enamul’s family members were unsure whether he went missing from Mohammadpur or Badda.

Police also investigated the possibility of Enamul’s involvement with any militant organization, but found no evidence to support the claim.
