A Bangladeshi agent Kidnapped in South Africa has been safeguarded after the capture of a man in Dhaka and seizure of payoff cash from him, police say.
Exile agent Md Shahidullah’s family paid Tk 500,000 in payoff after his snatching on Jan 2.
On Jan 30, the family documented a case over tax evasion and Akbar Hossain, 29, was captured in Jatrabarhi amid examination concerning the case.
Criminal Investigation Department (CID) discovered Tk 300,000 of the payment on him.
The kidnapped agent was then safeguarded with the assistance of South African police in Sasolburg on Tuesday, CID authorities said.
They said Hossain conceded that his brother by marriage “Rajib” in South Africa is included in the snatchin.
