Police officer boards plane without travel documents

A Bangladesh police officer boarded a Thai Airways plane without travel documents at the Dhaka International airport in the wee hours of Saturday. The plane’s captain refused to fly because of the security lapse. The police officer has been identified as Ashikur Rahman, a sub- inspector from Gopalganj, who works in the Dhaka Range police. He has been recently transferred to the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI). The incident took place at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. The Bangkok-bound TG-340 was scheduled to leave at 2am on Saturday. After the intervention of Civil Aviation and Shahjalal Airport authorities, the aircraft evenually left Dhaka around 3am.

Airport officials said that Ashikur Rahman had entered the airport. He was  in the blue uniform of the Range Police. When airport officials tried to stop him, Rahman simply went ahead, saying he was going for an investigation and crossed the green channel. Later, airport officials found him in the Thai Airways plane.

Kazi Iqbal Karim, director of the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, told The Independent that it was a very unfortunate incident. “We held him for interrogations, but his colleagues took him away from us,” he said.

“A complaint has been sent to the deputy inspector general for further action yesterday. A notice in this regard will also be sent to the home ministry today. Such incidents cannot be prevented unless exemplary punishment is meted out,” added Kazi Iqbal Karim.
