Rescue team to be sent to Nepal: PM

US Bangla Airlines opens hotline
UNB

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said Bangladesh will send a helping team to Nepal right after the resumption of operation in Tribhuban Airport to assist the Nepalese team in the rescue operation of the US Bangla Airlines plane crash incident, reports UNB. "Bangladesh will extend all sorts of necessary support," the prime minister said. Sheikh Hasina said this while talking to Nepalese Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli over telephone from Singapore at 7:50pm (local time).

 Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now in Singapore on a four-day official visit at the invitation of her Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong. However, she will be returning to the country today cutting short her trip following the crash.

 While talking to Nepalese counterpart, Sheikh Hasina expressed deep shock at the plane crash, according to a media release issued by the PM's Press Wing.

 Sharma Oli informed Hasina that he visited the spot after the crash and gave necessary directives.

Meanwhile, the US Bangla Airlines has set up a hotline +88001777777766 for information.

The airlines will arrange visit of one relative of the Bangladeshi passenger who were on board BS-211 today in the next available flight.

Kamrul Hasan, General Manager of US-Bangla Airlines told the media that they are thinking of boarding the relatives at their flight scheduled to depart at 8 am, provided the Katmundu airport remains open.

At least 50 people died as an aircraft of US-Bangla Airlines from Dhaka to Kathmandu crashed at Tribhuvan International Airport in the capital of the Himalayan country yesterday. The number of casualties may rise as some of those admitted to hospitals are in critical condition, said officials.
