Dhaka, July 21 (IANS) A list of missing Bangladeshis with the Rapid Action Battalion contains the name of a youth, who is the brother of a Bangladeshi man jailed in the UK for plotting to blow up a British plane in 2011.

Tehzeeb Karim, 33, went missing from the Shahjalal International Airport on July 17, his family said, bdnews24.com reported.

His brother Rajib Karim, associated with the Al Qaeda, is serving a 30-year term in a British jail.

In an interview to bdnews24.com their father Zainul Karim said Tehzeeb while returning from Bangkok after completing an English language course went missing from the airport on May 17.

Learning about his son’s name in the RAB’s list, Zainul asked the anti terrorism agency to release full details about such missing individuals. He suspects that his son — Tehzeeb — could be in the custody of the law enforcement agency.

Zainul added that after the arrest of Rajib, Tehzeeb was questioned by officials at the British High Commission in Dhaka.

After completing his A-levels Tehzeeb married his classmate from Scholastica school, he said.

Zainul also said his son Tehzeeb was in Pakistan but he did not disclose it to him and later he went to Yemen, where he managed the job of a teacher, adding that during the political turmoil his son was detained there for eight months.

The family said that Tehzeeb’s eldest brother Atik died in a ‘mysterious’ accident in London in 2001.
