Five students of two schools in Cox’s Bazar have reportedly gone missing, panicking their teachers and guardians.

Shihad Uddin, a class IX student of Poura Preparatory High School; HK Galib Uddin, Shahriar Kamal Akib, Safin Nur, students of class VIII; and Syed Nakib, a student of class VII of Cox’s Bazar High School, have been missing since Sunday morning.

The guardians of the missing students claim that their sons left their homes for school around 11am and did not return, reports UNB.

When they contacted the school authorities they discovered that the students were absent from class.

Advocate Mohammad Nezamul Haque said Galib, the elder son of his colleague Abdul Amin, did not return home after going to school.

Morshedul Alam said his two nephews – Akib and Safin – have been missing since they left their homes for school.

Cox’s Bazar Government Primary School Headmaster Ram Mohon Sen said the students were absent from their classes on Sunday.

Farid Uddin, officer-in-charge of Cox’s Bazar police station, said he had no knowledge of the missing persons as no-one has lodged a complaint.

Jalal Hossain, Shihad’s uncle, claimed that he went to the local police station but police asked him for more information to file a general diary.
