An information technology professional is reportedly missing in Dhaka for three days now.

Ataur Rahman Shahin, 38, was an assistant general manager at a private institution in Tejgaon. He was reportedly hustled into a microbus in Gulshan on Thursday night.

Victim’s uncle Saiful Islam filed a missing diary yesterday in connection with the incident, Industrial Police Station Officer-In-Charge Ali Hossain told The Daily Star.

He said, video footages of nearby CCTV cameras show he was shoved into a white microbus around 8:05pm Thursday. The car’s number plate was yet to be determined.

WHAT DOES THE CCTV FOOTAGE SHOW?

The vehicle was stationed in front of Akij House since 7:22pm where Atiur went on official purpose, said Manjur Hossain, his brother-in-law, who claims to have seen the footage.

As he was waiting for a rider of a ride-sharing service, three men were seen shoving him into the microbus and speeding away from the spot.

Manjur also said the men shown in the video footage seemed well-built in stature.
