Salahuddin’s family waiting for visas to go to Shillong

13 May 2015, Nirapad News: Reiterating that she wants to meet her husband as early as possible, Hasina Ahmed, wife of BNP leader Salahuddin Ahmed who was traced on Tuesday at an Indian hospital after over two months, on Wednesday said she will set out for the Meghalaya’s capital of Shillong once she gets Indian visas.

“We’ve applied for visa. We’ll set out for Shillong once visas are in our hands,” she told reporters at her residence.

Hasina said in their applications for visas they mentioned to use both air and road to go to Indian. “After getting the visas, we’ll decide whether we’ll go by air or road. We’ll choose the convenient one.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Hasina said her husband phoned her from Meghalaya Institute of Mental Health & Neurological Science (MIMHANS), India at noon.

BNP and Salahuddin’s family members had been claiming that law enforcers picked him up from a house at Uttara on the night of March 10, an allegation denied by the law enforcers and the government.

According to Indian The Shillong Times, police on Monday morning arrested one Bangladeshi national from the city. Police said that the Bangladeshi national Salauddin Ahmed, 54, was arrested from Golf Link, Shillong.

Salahuddin was arrested as he had entered the country without any valid documents. He was admitted to the mental hospital.

Family sources said Slahuddin’s wife, her brother-in-law Mahbubul Karim Bulbul and two others applied for Indian visas to go to Shillong. Hasina said she could not contact Salahuddin after Tuesday’s phone call. “We’ve come to know he has been transferred to a civil hospital from MIMHANS.

As her attention was drawn that there are some legal complications to return Salahuddin back home, she said, “We’ll take necessary steps once we reach there. I want the government’s cooperation in this regard. Nothing will be possible to do to this end without government’s cooperation.”
