Sharmila Rahman Sinthi, wife of late Arafat Rahman Koko, younger son of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, has returned to UK. She left Dhaka for London on a flight at 9:30 pm on Sunday (January 16).
According to multiple sources, Koko's wife Sharmila came to Dhaka on October 25 last year after receiving news of her mother-in-law Khaleda Zia's illness. She returned to the UK on Sunday night after a three-month stay in Dhaka.
A BNP leader said on condition of anonymity that Zahiya Rahman on Saturday and her mother Sharmila Rahman on Sunday had returned to the UK. The two parted ways because they got tickets for separate flights.
Incidentally, Khaleda Zia's youngest son Arafat Rahman Koko died on January 25, 2015 while in Malaysia. Since then, his wife Sharmila Rahman and two daughters have been living in the UK. Sometimes they come to Dhaka and stay at the house of mother-in-law Khaleda Zia.
