Unidentified people have led away Lakehead Grammar School Owner Khaled Hassan Matin from his office in Dhaka.
The education ministry in November ordered the school to be closed over charges of promoting militancy and extremism. The Supreme Court later ordered the school to be reopened with a new board of directors composed of the Dhaka Divisional Commissioner as chair and military officials as board members.
Seven to eight people in plainclothes came to Matin’s Gulshan offices on Saturday and led him away, source said.
Police immediately began investigating the scene after being informed. But, as of Saturday evening, the school has not filed a formal complaint, the sources added.
The police are currently searching for Matin’s whereabouts.
