[RxPG] Dhaka, April 22 - Bangladesh's former prime minister and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina could not fly for Dhaka from London as the British Airways declined to issue her boarding pass in compliance with advice of the country's caretaker government, which has put embargo on her return home.

Hasina came to the Heathrow airport Sunday afternoon with her confirmed ticket to avail of her scheduled flight to Dhaka. But the British Airways authorities expressed their inability to issue the boarding pass, saying that they cannot take her to Dhaka because of 'Bangladeshi government's advice,' according to a report reaching here from London.

The British Airways would issue a statement later in the day explaining the matter.

Hasina went back from the airport to her sister's house in London, expressing her resolve to carry on her move to return to Bangladesh.

Acting Awami League president and former minister Zillur Rahman termed as unfortunate the government's decision blocking Hasina, daughter of Bangladeshi founding leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, to return to her homeland. In a press statement, Rahman urged the interim government to withdraw the travel restriction to ensure the rule of law and human rights.

Hasina arrived in London last Thursday from Washington on her way back home. But Bangladesh's Home Ministry, in the meantime, imposed restrictions on her return apprehending that if she came back, she would make provocative statements that could cause political instability and disruption to economic activities.

The Bangladeshi government cautioned all airports and land-ports as well as airlines operating to Dhaka to take note of the measure.

Meanwhile, a Dhaka court Sunday issued arrest warrant against Hasina, jailed Awami League leader and ex-minister Mohammad Nasim and another party man in a murder case.
