Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday said detectives are working to trace those who have gone missing, including NSU teacher Dr Mubashar Hasan and journalist Utpal Das. 

The minister came up with the remark while talking to reporters after attending the 4th founding anniversary of the River Police at Mirpur PSC Convention Hall in the city. 

“Detectives are working to know why people are being disappeared and who are involved in such incidents,” Khan added. 

He also urged all to have patience and mentioned that most of those who had gone missing earlier returned to their families safely.   

Asked about BNP’s Suhrawardy Udyan rally, the Home Minister said law enforcers have been kept on alert so that nobody can create any disorder there and carry out subversive acts. 

The recent missing incidents of Dr Mubashar Hasan, an assistant professor of School of Humanities and Social Sciences of privately-run North South University, and Utpal Das, a senior reporter of online news portal purbopaschimbd.com, have sparked off a countrywide outcry.
