Probe prioritizes hunting down the masked men

Police have been looking for the masked men, who came to the apartment of Former Bangladesh ambassador to Vietnam Maroof Zaman, to resolve his missing case. The 'three well-dressed, tall men' entered into Zaman's home and took away his laptop, desktop and camera while the former ambassador was out of his home. The men also searched different drawers. Dhanmondi police have already collected the CCTV footage of the residence. 

"The footage shows that the men, wearing monkey cap, hurriedly got out from the building," said Dhanmondi police OC Md Abdul Latif adding, "They are yet to be identified."

Former ambassador Zaman remains missing since Monday night after he left his Dhanmondi home in his private car to pick up his daughter from Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.

OC Latif said Zaman's car was found abandoned on the road that was heading to the Purbachal Residential Area from Kuril Biswa Road, known as the 300-feet road to Dhaka residents. "But we are yet to trace him."

Zaman's daughter Samiha said she landed in Dhaka at 8pm on Monday after a seven-week trip to Belgium to visit her elder sister. "I waited for two hours." She said her father was driving the car, which was found late on Tuesday. "But there's no trace of him."

Quoting police Samiha said: "His last trace was tracked at Dakkhin Khan and lost the signal afterwards." She also said police contacted the family several times yesterday.
