Members of Rapid Action Battalions (Rab) on Tuesday arrested a youth from the city’s Badda area for abducting a schoolgirl in Brahmanbaria district.

The arrestee is Md Jasim Uddin, 25, son of Dhon Mia of Mondo village of Brahmanbaria.

The intelligence unit of Rab headquarters and a team of Rab-2 arrested Jasim, the mastermind of the abduction, after conducting a drive in Badda area of the capital in the morning.

Victim’s mother filed a case against Jasim Uddin and five others at the Brahmanbaria Sadar Police Station under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.

A video of the incident went viral social media and Rab launched a drive to arrest those involved in the incident.

Jasim Uddin went into hiding in the house of a relative in Badda area.

The arrestee reportedly confessed that he had been stalking the girl for several days before abduction.
