337 Bangladeshis to return home from Kerala today


A total of 337 Bangladeshis, who were evacuated from war-torn Yemen last week, is scheduled to return home from the Indian state of Kerala at the early hours of tomorrow.

They will reach at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 04.15 am and 04.30 am tomorrow morning respectively by two special flights of Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md. Shahriar Alam will receive them at the Airport, a foreign ministry press release said here this afternoon.

Two Indian ships– MV Kavaratti and MV Corals– with the citizens of India and Bangladesh left the African country, Djibouti, for Kochi port on April 12.

The Bangladeshis took shelter in the African country after the crisis hit the Middle Eastern country, Yemen, last month.

Meanwhile, 136 Bangladeshi nationals including five women and four children, who were evacuated from Hodeida, Yemen on April 15 by an Indian Naval Ship have arrived safely in Djibouti on the next day (April 16).

Bangladesh Ambassador to Kuwait stationed in Djibouti received them at the sea port. The ministry of foreign affairs has arranged food, shelter and other logistic for the Bangladeshi nationals.

Ministry of foreign affairs is also arranging their onward journey from Djibouti to Dhaka by special flight, which will be scheduled to operate on April 20, according to Bangladesh foreign ministry sources on Thursday.
