A change of guard in the Bangladesh Assistant High Commission is going to take place as the incumbent Assistant High Commissioner Shakhawat Hossain is leaving Tripura to join as the Director in the Department of External Affairs in Dhaka.
Shakhawat Hossain was the first Assistant High Commissioner in the Bangladesh mission in Tripura after the mission had been upgraded.
He had joined in Agartala after coming from Bangladesh mission in Madrid, capital of Spain, and contributed a lot to the improvement of relations between Tripura and Bangladesh in the larger context of fast-developing relation between India and Bangladesh.
A soft spoken person, known for his sophisticated demeanour, Shakhawat had also been conferred the dual charge of Bangladesh mission’s Assistant High Commissioner in Guwahati, stated a report in tripurainfo.com.
He will be replaced by Kiriti Chakma, currently posted as counsellor-cum-head of chancery in the Bangladesh mission in Brazil.
While Shakhawat Hossain is a specialist in medicine, Kiriti Chakma is a leather engineer and technologist who hailed from the Khagracherri district in Bangladesh.
He is expected to join his post at Agartala in the first week of December.
