The wife of Bashundhara Group Managing Director (MD) Sayem Sobhan Anvir and four other members of his family left the country on a chartered flight on Thursday night.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Group Captain AHM Touhid-ul Ahsan, director of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, said a special flight carrying them left for Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai at 8:55pm.

Mafidur Rahman, chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB), said they were allowed to leave after showing a clearance certificate obtained from the Special Branch of police, as a travel ban had been imposed on one of their family members.

Sayem Sobhan Anvir’s wife Sabrina Sobhan, their two children, Bashundhara Group Vice-Chairman Safwan Sobhan Tasvir’s wife Yeasha Sobhan, their daughter, and three domestic workers were the ones onboard, according to a top immigration official.
