Bangladesh government has already granted permission to an Indian intelligence unit to visit Dhaka, State Minister for Home Affairs Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said today.

India’s National Intelligence Agency’s (NIA) visit anticipated “anytime” comes in the backdrop of Delhi and Dhaka agreeing to share information on Burdwan blast.

“India sought to visit Dhaka and we have already granted them permission,” Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said while talking to reporters at the Secretariat in Dhaka.

“They will visit Dhaka when they see it fit,” he said.

Gowher Rizvi, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s international affairs adviser, had said that Dhaka was ready to share all information relating to banned militant outfit Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) – responsible for the Burdwan blast in Kolkata.

Earlier, reports were published that a tentative visit date was November 9 or November 10 and that the Indian delegation would be lead by an officer in the rank of Inspector General of Police.

A Kolkata court yesterday remanded the key accused of the October 2 Burdwan blast case, that left two dead, in the custody of NIA till November 20.
