Dhaka – Mubashar Hasan popularly known as Caesar returned home early on Friday, nearly a month and half after he went missing, family and police said.
Caesar, an assistant professor of private North South University, returned home at Banasree by a scooter after unknown group dropped him off blind-folded at the Airport Road early hours of the day.
He had gone missing on September 7 as he left home for the university on that day. Family, friends and relatives who were worried over his sudden disappearance expressed sigh of relief.
Moshiur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Khilgaon Police Station, said that Caesar returned his home at around 12:45am.
“He was looked very tired and traumatised as he returned,” Tamanna Tasmin, Caesar’s sister told local media.
While talking to reporters from different media, Caesar said he was kept in a dark room for the entire time of his captivity. The abductors were in arguments whether to kill him or not, he said.
Caesar came out of his residence to the downstairs to talk to reporters as they crowded in front of the home in the morning. He said the room he was given to stay had a sealed window. He was given unclean mattress for sleeping. He very often heard people talking at other room next to his room. The food served for him was cold, probably brought from hotels, said the teacher.
Caesar heard for sometimes that the abductors talked about money. They took away the money he had with when he was abducted. “They wanted to know whether I’ve any friends or relatives at the higher levels,” said Caesar.
He said the abductors picked him up from Agargaon area when he was returning by a rented car ending a meeting at UNDP. A group of people intercepted the car saying the vehicle was stolen one.
“The abductors applied a sort of ointment on my eyes and they pushed me inside a microbus when I was looking for another vehicle.”
Caesar thanked the media for their role during his abduction.
