Newsline: Bangladesh envoy to leave Pakistan

Bangladesh High Commissioner to Pakistan Suhrab Hossain has been asked to return home though his contractual appointment will expire in the middle of next year, said a diplomatic source. It could not be known immediately why he has been asked to return before the expiry of his tenure. However, the source indicated that his illness might be a reason. Hossain was appointed Bangladesh High Commissioner to Pakistan in July 2010 and his contract was extended for a number of times. The return of the envoy is taking place at a time when Bangladesh Pakistan’s relation is going through a tough time following Pakistan’s denial of its atrocities committed during the 1971 Liberation War and withdrawal of a female Pakistan diplomat from Dhaka for her alleged involvement in financing militancy here.
