Shipping minister Shajahan Khan on Friday said BNP Senior Vice-chairman Tarique Rahman will be brought back home soon with the help of the Interpol, reports BSS.
The BNP leader was convicted in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case on February 8.
Shajahan said this while inaugurating the new building of Charmuguria Merchant Bahumukhi High School in Madaripur in the morning.
The building was constructed at a cost of Taka 50 lakh financed by the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh. The minister said the court and Election Commission will decide on whether convicted BNP leaders- Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rahman- would take part in the next parliamentary election. The government has nothing to do with the matter, he added.
Additional deputy commissioner (ADC) of Madaripur Azaharul Islam and Sadar police station officer-in-charge M Kamrul Hasan District Muktijoddah Sangsad Commander Shahjahan Hawlader, among others, were present at the function.
Earlier, the minister visited the fire affected Haider Quazi Jute Mills in Madaripur.
