The news of the languishing of a missing rickshaw puller of Mangaldai inside a jail in Bangladesh has created sensation among the public in Assam. 

The whereabouts of this missing poor man came to light following a letter recently issued by the Deputy High Commissioner of India at Bangladesh. The Indian Deputy High Commissioner at Dhaka Biswadip Dey vide letter no. DAC/CONS/411/03/2019 dated May 5 of 2019 informed the Principal Secretary of Home and Political Department with a copy to the Chief Secretary of Assam and the Deputy Commissioner of Darrang that one Mukul Hazarika, son of Phuleswar Hazarika of village Hodapara under Mangaldai Police Station in Darrang district was lodged in Feni Jail in Bangladesh even after completion of his stipulated jail term.

Significantly, it has also been mentioned in the letter that due to the lack of necessary response from the State government regarding his nationality verification, he has been languishing in the Bangladeshi jail though he had completed his jail term. However, no details regarding his offence or period of conviction have been mentioned in the letter.

The Deputy Commissioner of Darrang immediately on receipt of the letter on May 7 has asked the police for making verification of the person lodged in Bangladesh’s jail.

Talking to this correspondent, Phuleswar Hazarika, the father of Mukul Hazarika informed that his only son went missing three years back and a missing entry was also lodged in Mangaldai Police Station. Recalling the fateful day and circumstances of the case, he said “My son aged about 40 was earning his livelihood as a rickshaw puller in Janaramchowka area and on that day he had gone to Janaram Chowk with my bicycle and since then he went missing along with the bicycle.”

Mukul Hazarika who had married Kanchan Hazarika is also a father of three sons. However, the family members have ruled out any possibility of the involvement of Mukul Hazarika with any militant outfit and disclosed that he was suffering from mental illness. The family members also could not find out the reason for landing of Mukul Hazarika in Bangladesh. Mukul had ended his schooling in class VI.

Though the family members are full of joy on receiving information of his whereabouts, they have also expressed their inability to go to Bangladesh and receive Mukul Hazarika on account of their poor economic situation. They have appealed to the district administration and the State government to make all necessary arrangements to bring him back to Mangaldai.
