“As he (Siddique) and the driver, Ripon, got down to assess the damage, the abductors sprayed chilli powder in Ripon’s eyes and took away my husband,” said Rizwana Hasan to local new dailies.
Though five hours have passed since the abduction of Syeda Rizwana Hasan’s husband, law enforcement agencies haven’t managed to come up with any updates on the abduction.
Rizwana, who was very upset, could not immediately ascertain any reason for the abduction.
