A dawn-to-dusk hartal is underway in Khagrachhari district on Monday demanding immediate rescue of three abducted businessmen.

The hartal is enforced by Parbatya Bangali Chhatra Parishad.

Earlier on Friday, the Parishad gave an ultimatum to rescue the businessmen within Sunday. As police failed to rescue the businessmen they enforced the hartal.

Long-route bus communication remained suspended due to the hartal. The plying of CNG-run auto-rickshaws and human hauliers was also limited.

Besides, security measures have been strengthened to avoid any untoward incident.

Meanwhile, picketing was reported in different areas of the district.

Khagrachhari Police Station OC Shahadat Hossain Titu confirmed the information to Daily Bangladesh.

He said we are working to rescue the abducted businessmen.

On April 16, two timber traders- Md Mohoram Ali and Md Salauddin and a pick-up van driver Bahar Miah went missing when they went to buy timber from Maischhari area in Mohalchhari upazila.
