Khaleda may visit KSA Sept 11-12
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is likely to go to Saudi Arabia on September 11 or 12 to perform Umrah.
According to the party official, Khaleda's brother Shamim Iskander and his wife, daughter-in-law Sharmili Rahman, former foreign secretary Shamser Mobin Chowdhury, her press secretary Maruf Kamal Khan Sohel, personal aide Shimul Biswas, among others, will altogether accompany the BNP chairperson.
Tarique Rahman's wife Zubaida Rahman and daughter Zaima Rahman later will join Khaleda at Saudi Arabia.
Khaleda, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, may go to London later to meet her ailing son Tarique but the source could not confirm it.
Khaleda earlier refused to leave the country for Saudi Arabia several times on what was billed as an exile during the tenure of the caretaker government.
