Dhaka – The jail authorities have detained three persons after they landed ‘mistakenly’ in the premises of a high security prison near Bangladeshi capital by a helicopter, police said.
The chopper carrying Billal Hossain, a Bangladeshi national expatriated in Malaysia, his Malaysian-national wife and two children landed at the school ground inside Kashimpur High Security jail at about 11 am.
Hossain told the jail officials the pilot mistakenly landed the chopper at the jail school ground stead of Kuddusnagar School ground in Konabari.
He hired the helicopter owned and operated commercially by Meghna Group to travel along with his family members to attend a marriage ceremony in Konabari, said Subrata Banik, superintendent of Kashimpur Central Jail-2.
Retired Wing Commander Sohel Latif was the pilot of the chopper.
Hossain hails from Homna Upazila of Comilla district. The jail authorities interrogated the three.
