A week into Mubashar Hasan Cesar, an assistant professor at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences in North South University, going missing, law enforcement agencies are yet to have any answers.
In a state of helplessness, Mubashar's ex-wife pleaded for Mubashar's return for the sake of his six-year old daughter in a letter sent to his sister.
Tamanna Tasmin, Mubashar's sister, shared a status on her Facebook yesterday quoting the letter. Tamanna prefaced the post by mentioning that she has always maintained good relations with Mubashar's ex-wife and was posting the letter on her behalf.
“Since November 7, a lot has been written about Mubashar and human-chains have been held. His friends want him back; they want trial of those involved in the abduction. I don't want their punishment or a trial. I only want my little daughter's father to return to her.” the status read.
“We have a daughter. I told my daughter that her father has gone abroad to study… however, she was hurt because he had never gone anywhere without telling her”.
“My daughter knows he will take her out on Friday to buy toys. But she cannot accept that he has 'gone abroad' without telling her,” the status said.
The letter quoted further read, “Our daughter believes her father will bring many toys for her from abroad. Her birthday is in November. Her father gives a birthday party for her and I give another. She asks, 'I will have two parties right?' How long I can tell her lies about the incident?”
In her letter, she further emphasised Mubashar's significance to his father. “As far as I know him, he won't be able to remain well without him for long. Please take steps to bring back Mubashar for the sake of his father and daughter at least, please. If need be, he won't do any jobs, but return him back to his father and daughter,” she added.
Talking to The Daily Star yesterday, Mubashar's sister Tamanna said the law enforcement agencies only told them that “they are trying [to find Mubashar]”.
Mubashar Hasan disappeared after leaving his workplace at around 4:30pm on November 7. Police said he last talked with someone over his mobile phone at 6:41pm when he was near Lions Eye Hospital in Agargaon.
