Dhaka – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is likely to return home from London on Thursday ending her nearly three-week visit to the United Kingdom, officials said on Wednesday.

Hasina, who left Dhaka for London on July 19, had undergone an eye surgery and attended a host of official programmes, including conference of the Bangladeshi diplomats stationed in Europe, during her stay in Britain.    

“The prime minister will depart London this (Wednesday) afternoon and reach Dhaka tomorrow (Thursday) morning,” the prime minister’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim was quoted to have said by state-run Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha.

A Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight carrying the prime minister will leave from Heathrow International Airport in London for Dhaka at 6:20 pm (London time).

The Prime Minister attended the Bangladeshi envoys’ conference on July 20 in London.

Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland QC and Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon separately called on Sheikh Hasina in the British capital.

On July 22, the prime minister underwent a successful surgery in her left eye at a London hospital.
