NHS doctor held captive by family in Bangladesh facing forced marriage
by John Bingham
An NHS doctor is allegedly being held captive by her family in Bangladesh who are suspected of preparing to force her to marry in defiance of a landmark British court order.
Dr Humayra Abedin, a trainee GP based in east London, has had virtually no contact with the outside world for almost four months after being visiting relatives at the family home in the capital Dhaka.
There are now fears that the 33-year-old, who has indicated that she is considering suicide, could be forced to marry within the next week.
