Police have arrested a lawyer named Afroza Zaman Runa on charges of kidnapping a lawyer named Mostafa Alam Himel in Kishoreganj.

On Tuesday night, Judge Shahidul Islam of Judicial Magistrate Court No. 2 denied bail and ordered Afroza Zaman Runa to be sent to jail.

Kishoreganj Sadar police OC Abubakar Siddique said Afroza Zaman Runa, a trainee lawyer, had a long love affair with Mostafa Alam Himel. Runa was pressuring Himel at different times for marriage. But Himel kept procrastinating to get married. At one point, Runa abducted Himel on the morning of the incident and took him home. Upon receiving the news, the police rescued Himel and brought him to the police station.

Nazrul Islam, the court's registrar officer, said Advocate Mostafa Alam Himel filed a case against her with the Sadar Model Police Station on Tuesday afternoon, accusing her and naming 3-4 others. Apart from Afroza Zaman Runa, the other three accused are her elder brother Md. Rana, neighbor Md. Safayet and Isfam.

Advocate Mostafa Alam Himel alleged that while he was on his way to work at around 9:30 am on Tuesday, the accused blocked his way in front of the main gate of the district judge’s court and forced him to leave in a white microbus. He was later taken to Afroza Zaman Runa’s house in Gaital Srinagar area and detained. Upon receiving the news, the police conducted an operation and rescued Mostafa Alam Himel.
