Dhaka, July 17 (ANI): The Bangladesh Police is investigating at least 11 reported cases of missing persons in Mymensingh, Gaibandha and Jamalpur in the aftermath of the Gulshan cafe attack in which the assailants had been missing for many months before resurfacing.

The police is looking for seven teens and young men, including a 12-year-old madrasa student, who went missing from different places in the past 18 months, reports the Dhaka Tribune.

After the law enforcement agencies urged citizens to report any suspicious case of missing persons in their families, hundreds of reports have been registered- especially of the people in their teens and 20s missing around the country.

A source in the Detective Branch said they are giving high priority to the cases of missing persons in the wake of the recent terror attacks.

Earlier, the Bangladesh Government had ordered all educational institutions in the country to give the lists of students, who have been absent for over 10 straight days. (ANI)
