Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Harsh Vardhan Shringla is likely to become the country’s next Ambassador to the US, replacing Navtej Sarna, who is scheduled to retire at the end of this year.
He is likely to be replaced by Riva Ganguly Das, currently in charge of MEA’s culture arm, Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), in Dhaka, reports Times of India.
The Indian government is planning a rash of changes in its envoys to a number of key world capitals, it said.
When approached, a diplomatic source in Dhaka said nothing is finalised. "It'll take time."
Shringla was appointed Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka in November, 2015.
