Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Friday demanded engaging foreign investigation agencies to trace out the party Joint Secretary General Salahuddin Ahmed who has remained untraced for the last eleven days.
The demand was made by Lt Gen (Retd) Mahbubur Rahman, a Standing Committee member of the party, when he visited the Gulshan residence of the missing leader of the party on Friday. He expressed his sympathy to the shocked family members.
Mentioning that it is the responsibility of the government to trace out Salahuddin, he urged the government to launch a search operation and return him unharmed to his family.
The BNP leader said, "It can't be acceptable that people would disappear and no one will be able to trace them out."
Mahbubur Rahman said, "The disappearance of a leader like Salahuddin Ahmed has manifested a serious slide in the country's law-and-order situation."
Meanwhile, Hasina Ahmed, wife of Salahuddin Ahmed said that she humbly appealed to the Prime Minister for helping to rescue her husband. "I'm now waiting for the Prime Minister's instruction to conduct a search operation," she added.
It may be added that when BNP-Jamaat alliance was in power, the government refused to accept involvement of the Scotland Yard police to investigate into the sensational murder case of Shah A S M kibria, the then Former Finance Minister of the country.
