Bangladeshi mountaineer Musa Ibrahim will return home on Thursday as the dispute over payment with the helicopter company got settled through discussion.
“Bangladesh, I’m coming home,” he wrote on his Facebook wall on Tuesday morning saying the problem is solved after their negotiation with the helicopter company went successful at Timika police station.
Musa and his two Indians, who had remained stuck for the last few days at the base camp of Mount Carstensz Pyramid in Papua Province of Indonesia due to bad weather, were rescued on Monday morning.
But, Musa and his Indian friend Satyarup Siddhanta in separate Facebook posts expressed their uncertainty over their smooth return to their respective countries saying AsiaOne, the helicopter company, confiscated their passports.
The helicopter company wanted to charge US$ 11,000 instead of agreed $6,500. However, Musa and his friends agreed to pay $ 8,000 because that is the maximum they can pay. They were “ideally under house arrest” by Airline Company and their passports had been confiscated illegally.
In his previous Facebook post, Musa dedicated his success of hoisting the national flag of Bangladesh on the Mount Carstensz Pyramid to all Bangladeshis. “I want to share this happiness with each and every person of Bangladesh.”
