>Tarique quits party, fly for London

>

FORMER prime minister Khaleda Zia’s son Tarique Rahman last night flew to the United Kingdom for treatment hours after his just-freed mother’s announcement that he will stay off politics until he recovers fully. (Full report)
Earlier, he tendered resignation as the senior joint secretary general of BNP, party sources said.
Meanwhile, a statement made available after midnight says he has “retired from active politics with effect from September 11” [yesterday]. 
Authenticity of Tarique’s signature in the statement however could not be verified as of filing this report at 1:00am.
Tarique left Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital at around 7:00pm for the Zia International Airport. As he was wheeled out of the hospital, cheers went up from hundreds of party leaders and workers gathered outside.
The Emirates flight carrying him took off at around 9:55pm.
