The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has rescued two siblings from Bhatara area in the city.
Mahia Akter Pinki, 12, and Biplob Bepari, 10, lived with their aunt in Faridpur under Kotwali thana as their mother works in Jordan.
They left the house after their aunt scolded them for breaking a water glass on Sept 21, CID’s DIG Abdullahel Baki told the media.
Pinki and Biplob were going to their grandfather’s house but lost their way and ended up in Dhaka.
Their aunt Saleha Begum filed a complaint with the Kotwali police in Faridpur after the children went missing.
A team of CID rescued the siblings after a 48-hour long drive.
The children forgot the way to their grandfather’s house and ended up in Dhaka. For the last several days they were living on the streets.
The children also tried to call their father but failed to reach him.
A rickshaw puller saw the children crying on the road in Gulshan area and took them to his house.
The rickshaw puller also made a call to the father of the children but switched off his phone later.
CID members rescued the children after tracking the phone call of the rickshaw puller.
None was arrested in this connection.
