Kalyan Party leader Aminur made disappeared, alleges BNP

BNP on Wednesday expressed its fear that MM Aminur Rahman, secretary general of its alliance partner Kalyan Party, was made disappeared as he remained missing since Sunday.

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir came up with the allegation at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.

Fakhrul said Aminur went missing as he came out of his Nayapaltan residence for his local residence in Savar on Sunday.

“Kalyan Party chairman Syed Ibrahim came here (BNP office) with serious worry as he has failed to get any trace of his party’s secretary general over the last three days. We’re in doubt whether he was subjected to enforced disappearance,” the BNP leader said.

He demanded the government immediately trace Aminur and return him to his family.

Meanwhile, Kalyan Party, one of the components of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, staged a human chain programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club in the afternoon, demanding that Aminur be traced.

Speaking at the programme, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said the country has now turned into a ‘state of enforced disappearance’.

“The opposition leaders and activists are being made disappeared under the patronage of the government. The country can’t run in this way,” he observed.

Rizvi alleged that the government has long been indulging in such heinous crime only to ‘perpetuate’ its power.

He alleged that the government has been ‘using police and Rab to implement its killing mission to suppress its opponents’.

The BNP leader urged the government to immediately find out Aminur and return him to his family. UNB
