Cox’s Bazaar — A Rohingya refugee youth who was abducted by a group of people in civil dresses on January 14, 2016 returned to his place in Kutupalong Refugee Camps on March 21, 2016.
The victim has been identified as Mohammed Anam, 25, Block Shed 10, from Kutupalong Refugee Camps.

It has been learnt that the refugee, an under-graduate student studying Law and Legislation (LLB) at a University in Chittagong, used to run a shop at Kutupslong Refugee Market to make their daily ends meet.

“Around 2:30PM on January 16, a group of (sophisticated) people arrived at his shop; and handcuffed and took him on their car. After that, they blind-folded him and took him to unknown destination.

They tortured him a lot and asked some names which he had no clues about. They seized his Mobile Phone and Laptop Computer. After that, they checked up all his email accounts and social networking accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Viber, IMO and Whatsapp etc.
They conducted investigations by checking up the list of the calls made in last three years. However, the names that they were looking for were said to have never been found.

Around 12:30AM on March 21, they dropped him blind-folded at a place called ‘Gaptoli’ in Dhaka city. All the equipment seized from him were returned,” said one of his refugee mates in the Kutupalong camps.

Since he has gone missing, every body including, Mr. Mahmud, the current In-Charge, and UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) has tried to look for him but all in vain. People were of the opinion that he was killed.

Now, everybody seems with his returning alive as he is one of the few educated Rohingya refugees, according to M. Maalik, a refugee in the camp.
