India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has officially named Vikram Kumar Doraiswami as the next high commissioner to Bangladesh.

Doraiswami is currently an additional secretary at the ministry. He is expected to take up the assignment shortly, the MEA said on Thursday, reports UNB.

Doraiswami has earlier served as the Indian ambassador to the Republic of Korea. He was also posted in Uzbekistan, Hindustan Times reports. 

He joined the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) in 1992. Before joining government service, he used to work as a journalist.

Doraiswami has a Masters degree in history from Delhi University. He can converse in Chinese and Urdu, and knows a little bit of French as well, according to Hindustan Times.

Doraiswami will replace Riva Ganguly Das, the 1986 batch officer of the Indian Foreign Service (IFS).

Das, who replaced Harsh Vardhan Shringla as the Indian high commissioner to Bangladesh, arrived in Dhaka on March 1 last year to take up her assignment.

She is likely to leave Dhaka in the first week of October.
