Commander of the Teknaf Battalion, Lt Col Abu Jar Al Jahid, said an ambulance carrying the border guard had set off for Dhaka. “Razzak will be treated in our hospital at Peelkhana.”
The BGB man was abducted by Myanmar’s Border Guard Police on June 17 following a shoot out on Naf River amidst the tension over Rohingyas. Another BGB soldier, Biplob Kuman, was shot.
He was handed over to the BGB on Thursday following a flag meeting in Maungdaw after nearly a week’s delay.
Razzak was taken to the Teknaf headquarters and told journalists before getting on to the car, “I am doing well.”
However, when asked about the cuts on his nose, Razzak said that happened when he was being taken.
Razzak did not clarify whether he was tortured while being detained in Myanmar. No official statement on the matter came from BGB.
Myanmar initially demanded Bangladesh take in 555 migrants, who were recovered from the Andaman Sea by their navy. However, BGB Director General Aziz Ahmed said the BGB man was finally released ‘unconditionally’.
