Hasidur’s body arrives in Dhaka

The body of engineer Md Hadisur Rahman, who was killed in a rocket attack on the Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) vessel stranded at a Ukraine port, has arrived in Dhaka.

A Turkish Airlines cargo plane, TK 722, carrying the body landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 12:06 pm on Monday

Hadisur's relatives were present at the airport at the time, confirmed ATM Touhidul Alam, executive director of Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh.

The body of Hadisur was scheduled to reach Dhaka on Sunday from Romania via Istanbul but the flight carrying the body failed to take off timely due to heavy snow storm in Istanbul.

Earlier on March 9, 28 surviving crew members of the Bangladeshi ship who were stranded in war-torn Ukraine, arrived in Dhaka.

They went from Ukraine to Moldova to reach Bucharest, from where they flew to Dhaka.

The Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) ship had been stranded at Olvia port in Ukraine since February 23, following Russia's invasion of its eastern European neighbour.

Hadisur, third engineer of the BSC ship, was killed in a rocket attack on the vessel. The ship had since then been declared abandoned.

Hadisur’s body was preserved in a bunker near Ukraine as the procedure to bring back the body was being delayed due to the worsening situation in Ukraine.
