The 31-year-old midfielder, who was set to leave Denmark for Dhaka on an Emirates flight via Dubai ahead of the second term of the Bangladesh Premier League,
was reportedly sent back from the airport in Copenhagen as he could not provided for special documents for foreign nationals made mandatory by the Bangladesh foreign ministry documents to enter the country during the lockdown.
It has been learned that the SAIF Sporting Club player showed his Danish passport to the officials at the Copenhagen airport as he had left his Bangladeshi passport here in Dhaka. But he did not even apply to the foreign ministry for special permission to come to Dhaka,
thinking his Danish passport would be enough like in normal times. The Bangladesh captain was supposed to join SAIF Sporting Club for the second phase of the league, which is expected to get underway on April 30. However, the schedules have not been prepared yet as there is still doubtfulness over the date of restart .

The midfielder had returned to Denmark and then went to Germany from there to spend time with his family members in the first week of this month before the initial lockdown was assigned.
