Kidnappers on the prowl

Kidnapping for ransom has become a regular event now-a-days; mostly schoolgoing children are the target of the criminals. People have become frightened not knowing how to cope with this situation. On November 11, 2012, six-year-old Parag Mondol was kidnapped by criminals riding motorbikes, who shot his mother and sister before abducting him. He was found alive when the kidnappers left him after receiving Tk 50 lakh. But Anik Hossain, aged 11, was not so lucky. He was abducted on November 12, 2012. The kidnappers killed him and his body was found in a water body because his parents did not pay the ransom money and informed the police. After tracking their mobile phones police arrested three people and with their confessional statement, the police were able to locate the body. How agonising monstrosities!

Those who could do such crimes are fiends in human disguise; they must get capital punishment so that in future no one dares to commit such a heinous crime.

We feel deeply sorry for the families who had to go through this unimaginable pain, and pray and hope that no one will have to suffer like this anymore. May Almighty Allah save us from such heart-wrenching fates.
