Child stolen, ransom demanded
A one-and-a-half year old boy was allegedly stolen while sleeping with his parents at their home in Sadar upazila of Laxmipur early Monday.
Meanwhile, some miscreants demanded Tk 5 lakh as ransom from the distressed family.
Family members said the child's parents Mamun and Kohinoor went to bed with their son Minhaj on Sunday night.
But, at dead night they woke up and found their son missing. Kohinoor's mobile phone set was also missing.
As Mamun made a call to Kohinoor's cell around 5.00am, the miscreants picked up it and demanded Tk 5 lakh as ransom for his release.
Superintendent of Laxmipur Police Dr AHM Kamaruzzaman visited the spot.
Police are trying to rescue the child and investigating the incident, said Kamaruzzaman.
