Bangladeshi immigration holds Chencho

Chencho Gyeltshen has reached in Dhaka to play for Chittagong Abahani in the second leg of the Bangladesh Premier League, but the first day experience of the Bhutan striker at the Shahjalal International Airport was not good at all.

The 20-year-old forward, who had scored two goals against Bangladesh earlier this month as the Bhutan booked a place in the final round of Asian Cup Qualifiers at Bangladesh’s expense, was confined inside the airport for about nine hours after his flight landed at 9:20 in the morning.

The reason for this was a lack of communication as Chencho had arrived here without acquiring a prior visa as he thought visa for Bangladesh would be made available on arrival. So he did not get clearance from the immigration police initially, and only after the Bhutan Embassy in Dhaka, in collaboration with Bangladesh Football Federation, arranged him five days’ of visa, the forward was allowed to leave the airport, informed BFF’s protocol officer Hamiduzzaman Noman.
