The abducted manager of Sonali Bank's Ruma branch in Bandarban was rescued through the mediation of the Rapid Action Battalion on Thursday.

The bank manager, Nizam Uddin, was rescued on Thursday, confirmed ASP Imran Khan of RAB headquarters media wing.

Nahar, a teacher of Bandarban Cantonment Public School and College, revealed the matter to the media shortly after she received a phone call from the KNF.

As part of the criminal activities, the separatist group kidnapped the Sonali Bank manager on April 2 and looted Tk 1.5 crore from the Ruma branch.

The incident occurred during Taraweeh prayers. The robbers looted 14 weapons from the Ansar members guarding the bank and abducted bank manager Nizam from the mosque on the bank premises.
