Dhaka, Oct 3 (UNB) -BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir left for Singapore for medical treatment on Thursday night.
Fakhrul along with his wife Rahat Ara Begum left Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport for Singapore in a flight of Singapore Airlines around 11:55pm, BNP chairperson’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told UNB.
