Siam Sarower Jamil
Dhaka, Aug 10: Prison authorities have detained three members of a Bangladeshi-Malaysian family for trespassing after they flew by helicopter onto the grounds of Kashimpur jail in Gazipur, near the capital.
The detainees are 50-year-old Billol Hossain, who was born in Comilla, and his Malaysian wife Hasna Ara Binte. Their three children are also in custody.

The incident occurred around 11am on Thursday in the prison school field in Kashimpur, said Dhaka Central Prison-2 Jailor Anwar Hossain.
The family had hired the helicopter from the Dhaka-based Meghna company to attend a wedding in Konabari, Hossain told Imphal Times.
“We are questioning them. Further decisions will be made once we consult the inspector general and the deputy inspector general.’
