Miscreants Abduct Husband of Activist Lawyers Husband

Unknown miscreants abducted the husband of Syeda Rizwana Hasan, the Chief Executive of Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (Bela) Mr. Abu Bakar Siddique, in Fatulla area of Narayanganj while he was travelling to Dhaka from Narayanganj by his car.

Mr. Abu Bakar Siddique is a is currently working for Hamid Fashion in Narayanganj. Siddique, who , was alone in his Sedan was intercepted by a car with miscreants at around 2:45 PM today near Bhuiya Filling Station in Fatulla.

“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.

Rizwana, attorney and environmentalist, is the chief executive of Bangladesh Environment Lawyers Association (Bela). She was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2009. She was also awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award in 2012.

We hope her husband comes back to her soon and in good health.
