Bangladesh arrests man over Saudi diplomat SMS
Dhaka: Detectives in Bangladesh`s capital have arrested a former Saudi Embassy employee for allegedly threatening the mission`s charge d`affaires.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police official Khandaker Lutful Kabir said today that police arrested 57-year-old A N M Rashid Ahmed for allegedly sending a threatening SMS to diplomat Sami-Jamiul-Al-Hasan.
Hasan is on leave and received the message in Saudi Arabia.
The police official says Ahmed, a Bangladeshi citizen, was arrested late yesterday after the embassy complained that he sent a message reading: "You will face death if (you) return to Dhaka."
The complaint says the embassy fired Ahmed after accusing him of corruption.
The alleged threat comes three months after a Saudi Embassy official was killed by unidentified assailants in Dhaka.
Police say they are investigating that case but there has been no apparent headway.
