Quader: No comment before probe report on emergency landing of PM's plane
However, he said, six Biman officials had been suspended for negligence in duty as cited in the initial investigation report.
Awami League General Secretary said: “Had the Biman flight failed to make a safe landing on November 27, the country would have faced with a “terrible disaster”.”
He also said: "The nation would have been plunged into the darkness of 'great. So, prayers were offered across the country seeking long life and good health of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina." Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, made the remarks while talking to journalists after attending a prayer and milad mahfil at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque after Jumma prayers on Friday, BSS reports. Special prayers were also offered at all places of worships including mosques, temples, churches and pagodas across the country seeking long life and good health of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said Quader. Replying to a question on whether emergency landing of the prime minister's flight was an accident or negligence, the minister said: "It cannot be said right at this moment as it may hamper the investigation." The special VVIP flight (BG 1011) "Ranga Pravat" carrying the premier and 99 passengers, including her entourage, four cockpit crews, 20 cabin crew and four aircraft engineers left Dhaka for the Hungarian capital at 9.14 am on November 27. But due to technical fault it landed at Ashgabat, the Turkmenistan capital, at 2.15 pm Bangladesh time by changing its route. After arrival at Ashgabat, the on-duty engineers repaired the fault. Later, the Biman's special VVIP flight carrying Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina started for Budapest at 6.37 pm after over four hours of unscheduled stopover at Ashgabat. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina went to Budapest on a four-day bilateral visit in conjunction with Budapest Water Summit 2016 at the invitation of Hungarian President Dr Janos Ader. Biman Bangladesh Airlines on December 1 suspended its six officials who were involved with the inspection of the VVIP flight of the premier on the basis of a preliminary investigation report of the probe body.
