In ‘Baby’s Day Out’ movie, three criminals abduct the baby of a rich man with the hope of Ransom. But the naughty baby, almost same age that of Maisha, gives the three kidnappers, not used to taking care of a baby, a run for their money. Maisha was snatched away when five robbers robbed her house in Khilgaon, Dhaka.
We don’t know what transpired between Maisha and her kidnappers since she was snatched away from her mother’s lap, but we can easily assume that the robber/ kidnappers did not have much luck with baby Maisha either. It probably was the longest night for the kidnappers, no sooner the morning day light came out and the kidnappers found a suitable spot to drop the baby off, Maisha was out in the streets waiting for someone to pick her up. The robber/ kidnappers had to be ingenious in finding a way to send a message with Maisha. Giving a piece of paper at Maisha’s hand was out of question. Maisha will either eat it or throw it away. Baby’s don’t carry bag or don’t have pockets. So the robbers came up with the excellent (!) idea of buying a white T shirt for Maisha, write the message on the T shirt and put the T shirt on her!
The next chapter of the story was happy ending. Although unlike the movie “baby’s Day Out”, Maisha’s kidnappers were not apprehended, Maisha is back to her mother’s lap.
If you look at TV footage, Maisha is really a adorable girl. It is hard not to love this cute baby. As seen in TV footage, along with the parents of Maisha, Bangladesh police looked very elated. Smile could not fit their faces. Although police had nothing to do in getting Maisha back, police were all ready to claim it as their major operational victory. It was funny how Mirpur Thana police chief told the media that he rescued Maisha based on secret tip off! The fact is that the kidnappers wrote the mobile phone number of a relative of Maisha on maisha’s T shirt. The person who found Maisha called that number — Khilgaon police gave a ride to maisha’s family all the way to paikpara, where Maisha was dropped off.
Days are really bad for police in Bangladesh now. No one care for them anymore. They cannot solve any crime. No one really expects them to solve or prevent any crime. Even the high court of the country give them big time public shunting and takes their job away from their hand to give it to RAB. Now a days they even are not considered as possible suspects for crimes. Robbery, bribery, drug impanting, adbuction, extra judicial killing, disappearance — which used to police underworld staples, all are in RAB hands these days. Nobody counts Bangladesh police any more– plain and simple.
Maisha made a lot of people in Bangladesh smile. Her parents smiled on getting her back, Bangladesh police smiled to claim that they had an operational victory after a secret tip off and people in Bangladesh smiled to finally able to see a semi positive news and a cute baby’s face in TV.
