Khagrachhari, May 9 (UNB) - A Dhaka University lecturer who went missing from the capital`s Shahbagh area on Tuesday turned up at Dighinala Police Station in Khagrachhari hill district on Wednesday.
Nuruddin Alo, a lecturer of Political Science Department of Dhaka University, was admitted to Khagrachhari Hospital at around 1 pm as he fainted a few minutes after he turned up at Dighinala thana.
Dighinala thana officer Shahdat Hossain said he appeared at the police station at 12:45 pm shouting ‘save me’ and claimed that he was kidnapped from Shahbagh on Tuesday morning by a gang of criminals whom he identified as his rivals at the DU Department.
Nuruddin said the gangsters first took him to Uttara and then Mirpur, where, the lecturer claimed, he was physically tortured and made to take sedatives.
``Later``, the OC, quoting the victim, said, ``The gangsters drgged him into a microbus and a little while later I fell sick and lost consciousness.``
He was dumped in a rut (rural walkway) at Kammakkachhari, 2-3 kilometer off Dighinala upazila headquarters, the OC said.
Nuruddin regained sense sometimes after he was dumped there and walked into the police station, where he fainted soon after narrating his plight, Shahadat said.
He was first admitted to Dighinala Health Complex which referred him to the district hospital where he regained sense at 7.30 pm, police and hospital sources said.
He was carrying a cell phone and an identity (ID) card of the University, Shahdat said
