Staff Correspondent: Passport of Bangladesh Airlines Pilot Captain Fazal Mahmud has been sent to Qatar by a flight of Regent Airlines.
He was caught by Qatar Immigration when he flew there to bring back Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina from Finland.
According to Biman, approval was taken from Foreign Ministry to send the passport.
Regent Airlines agreed to carry the passport as Foreign Ministry approved. The passport will reach Qatar on Thursday night.
K M Akhtaruzzaman, DGM of Regen Airlines (Airport Service) confirmed the news.
He said, “The passport was sent by a Doha-bound flight which took off at 7:30pm on Thursday.”
Meanwhile, Decision will be taken on Friday whether Pilot Fazal Mahmaud will run the flight which will carry Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
According to rules, Pilot who will operate flight that will carry Prime Minister, he must reach the destination a day before for rest. If any fresh pilot is sent to Finland tomorrow, he will not get rest. So, Fazal Mahmud is most likely to operate the PM’s flight.
However, Detective agencies are investigating the matter why he was flying Finland without passport to carry PM.
