A total of 1,37,198 hajj pilgrims would be able to perform the hajj this year.
Saudi government has increased quotas for Bangladesh from 1,27,000 to 1,37,000 for the next year’s hajj.
Their palms facing the sky, around two million Muslims gather on Saudi Arabia's Mount Arafat for the highlight of the hajj pilgrimage, one of the world's largest annual gatherings.
Anti-Corruption Commission has launched a probe into the alleged irregularities and misappropriation of money of 98 pilgrims by 18 hajj agencies.
The number of Bangladeshi pilgrims killed in the Mina stampede during Hajj last month now stands at 137, while at least 53 others still remain missing.
Experts on crowd control explain that such stampedes occur when massive crowds of people, in a tightly packed space, attempt to press forward when there is no way to divert or turn back. Saudi authorities have explained the stampede as a fault of the pilgrims not heeding instructions.
