The body of Biman Bangladesh Airlines pilot Captain Nawshad Ataul Qayyum reached Dhaka from India's Nagpur on Thursday morning.  

A flight (BG-026) of the national flag carrier, carrying the body, landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at around 9:10 am. 

According to the Biman sources, a Dhaka-bound flight from Qatar's Doha brought the body of the deceased with a stopover at Nagpur's Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport. Two sisters of the captain Nawshad who were in Nagpur, accompanied the body to Dhaka. 

On Monday, Captain Nawshad died at Kingsway Hospitals in the Indian state of Maharashtra after fighting for life for four days as he was in “coma” in the hospital following a brain hemorrhage. 

The Dhaka-bound Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight from Muscat BG 022 made an emergency landing at Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport in Nagpur with 124 passengers on Friday morning when pilot Captain Nawshad Qayyum suffered heart attack in mid-air.

Immediately after landing, the sick pilot was sent to Kingsway Hospital in Nagpur where he was undergoing treatment at the ICU following brain hemorrhage. A three-member doctor panel was formed for the treatment of Captain Nawshad.
