Five family members and three domestic staff of Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir left Dhaka for Dubai by a chartered aircraft last night.
The private jet left Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 8:56pm, a top official of Aviation Security (AVSEC) at the airport confirmed to The Daily Star.
The aircraft is operated by Sky Solution Limited, a company of Bashundhara Group, said the official wishing anonymity.
The family members left the country two days after Anvir was accused in a case over abetting suicide of a college student at a flat in the capital's Gulshan.
According to the passenger list, a copy of which has been obtained by this newspaper, the five family members include Anvir's wife Sabrina Sobhan, their two children, wife of Anvir's younger brother Yeasha Sobhan and her daughter.
Sources at the airport told The Daily Star that security officials were on alert to make sure that Anvir could not leave the country as a Dhaka court imposed a travel ban on him.
Talking to this newspaper, Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh Chairman Air Vice Marshal M Mafidur Rahman said the chartered aircraft sought permission on Tuesday to operate a flight and they granted the permission.
The passengers got clearance from the Special Branch of police and then the chartered flight left the country, he added.
