Hasina Ahmed wants Govt help to bring Salahuddin back


Hasina Ahmed, wife of BNP leader Salahuddin Ahmed, yesterday sought cooperation of the government to bring back her husband from India.
“I always sought cooperation of the government since nothing is possible without their assistance,” she said while talking to reporters at her Gulshan residence.
Hasina informed reporters that she has already submitted application for visa to visit her husband now in Civil Hospital in Meghalaya’s capital Shillong.“I am waiting to have visa form Indian High Commission. After receiving it (visa) I will go to Shillong as soon as possible to meet my husband,” she said.
The BNP joint secretary general has been found on Monday morning at a hospital in Shillong after 63 days of his missing from an Uttara residence.
But it was not possible to find out as how he went to Shillong.
Hasina said she could not contact with Salahuddin yesterday as he was shifted to Civil Hospital from Meghalaya Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (MIMHANS) Hospital.
Four persons including Hasina and her brother-in-law Mahbubul Karim Bulbul applied for visas.
BNP standing committee member Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan is keeping contact with Indian High Commission to ease the visa process for them, according to sources.
Hasina expressed her gratitude to all including the countrymen as her husband was found unhurt.
Meanwhile, Salahuddin Ahmed is going to be produced before the court in Shillong by Meghalaya police by Saturday on charge of illegally entering India without valid travel documents.
Shillong Times editor Manas Chaudhuri told a Dhaka daily yesterday citing the police guarding Salahuddin at the Civil Hospital.
He said the police kept the BNP leader in a separate room of the hospital, which is marked for use by under-trial prisoners.
Manas Chaudhuri, also a former cabinet minister in the Meghalaya government, said now it is the turn of the court to decide whether Salahuddin would be sent to jail or would be kept in police custody.
Quoting police Chaudhuri further said family members of the BNP leader could visit him with approval from police.
Police sources told local journalists that the hospital authorities would provide him treatment if he has any health problems.
On another query, police said they would interrogate Salahuddin, who is now undergoing treatment, as soon as he feels well. – Staff Reporter
