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.
