Jeddah police received a letter from Interpol Dhaka office today (Wednesday) to start the procedure of sending back expatriate Bangladeshi Kamrul Islam, the main suspect of the 13-year old Rajon murder case.
First secretary at Bangladesh Consulate in Jeddah, Altaf Hossain, confirmed the matter.
According to the secretary, Saudi Ministry of Interior will forward the Interpol’s letter to the Royal King for his approval to send back Kamrul to Dhaka.
As Saudi government offices will remain closed from Tuesday for Eid, it is difficult to send back the murder suspect before the Eid-ul Fitr. The secretary further said that Kamrul will be repatriated to Dhaka soon after the offices open after Eid.
Earlier on Monday, Kamrul, who was caught by the Bangladeshi community in Jeddah, was handed over to police by the Bangladesh Consulate.
