Shortly after, six or seven abductors throttled and demanded a ransom of Tk two million from him. The kidnappers threatened to kill him if he refused to pay.
At one stage, they started torturing him saying that he would be killed if he did not pay at least Tk 300,000. Finally, Tejendra Debnath called his wife and asked to give Tk 300,000.
After getting TK 300,000 through bKash, the kidnappers sprayed pepper powder in his eyes and threw him from the car in the Lalpoll area of Feni around 10:00pm.
Later he somehow managed to return home. Officer in Charge (OC) of Sitakunda Model Police Station, Abul Kalam Azad said no written complaint has yet been made in this regard. Legal action will be taken after receiving a complaint, OC said.
