Kheder was part of a high-level army delegation paying a courtesy call to the Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff, General Abu Belal Muhammad on Tuesday.

Only one person on board had minor injuries.

The KUNA news agency said the helicopter came down Wednesday in trees because of thick fog in northeastern Bangladesh.
