Bangladesh’s Envoy to Nepal in Hot Water

Various Bangladeshi news sources are reporting that Ambassador to Nepal, Neem Chandra Bhowmik is under investigation and could be recalled.

He is accused of engaging in activities against diplomatic protocol, which reportedly have affected Bangladesh’s image in Kathmandu.

Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister Dipu Moni is quoted by BDNews24.com as saying that Dhaka has received several complaints against the Ambassador from Kathmandu and is investigating.

It is interesting to note here that Nepali media has been largely quite about this. They have not shown interest in the story, even though it is a serious one considering Nepal’s cordial relations with Bangladesh which has so far avoided major snafus.

Ambassador Bhowmik denies all the allegations against him and claims that some people are trying to hurt his image.

So far, the Nepali government and foreign ministry have not commented on this issue.
