On the evening of February 24, local time, a Boeing 737 airliner of Bangladesh Airlines was hijacked. According to the latest news from the American Times Weekly on the 24th, military officials said that the suspect was a Bangladeshi who was injured in a firefight with the military commando and was sent to the hospital to die.
The report stated that the suspect had asked to talk to his wife and the Prime Minister of Bangladesh during his lifetime. The chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority, Hassan, said that the suspect was suspected of being mentally disordered. He said that I said this because of his actions. He wanted to talk to the prime minister before.
According to previous reports, the plane was originally planned to fly from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to Dubai. After the gun hijacking, the plane landed at the Shah Amanat International Airport in Chittagong. The suspect tried to command the cockpit of the aircraft, causing the plane to land in an emergency. But this statement has not been confirmed.
An eyewitness said that when the pilot tried to stop the gun hijackers from entering the cockpit, they heard gunshots. The hijacker later claimed that he was wearing a suicide vest and asked for direct communication with the prime minister and senior government officials.
In a recent report by Time magazine, Hassan said at the press conference that all 143 passengers and seven crew members were safely evacuated.
