'DB men' hit main gate at night: Luna

Some mysterious people posing as members of detective branch of police tried to enter missing BNP leader M Elias Ali’s Banani residence in the capital early Friday.

The unidentified ‘DB men’ could not enter the house as Tahsina Rushdir Luna, the wife of M Elias Ali, rejected their requests to open the gate for searching the house.

A group of men identifying themselves as DB police knocked at the gate around 1:00am, Luna told reporters quoting the guard of the house.

Sensing something fishy, she refused to let them enter the house in the wee hours of the night, Luna said.

Mystery shrouded over the incident while Mahbubur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Detective Branch (North) outright rejected the allegation of sending DB personnel over there.

“There is no question of such conduct. We will investigate whether anybody in the guise of law enforcers did so,” Mahbubur Rahman said.

M Elias Ali, 51, one of the organising secretaries of the BNP and a former lawmaker, and his driver went missing while returning to his Banani residence in the early hours of April 18.
