‘Forced marriage' doctor, Humayra Abedin, heads home from Bangladesh
by Philippe Naughton
An NHS doctor freed by the courts after being held captive by her family in Bangladesh will arrive in Britain today.
Dr Humayra Abedin, 33, from East London, was being held by her parents against her will in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka and put under pressure to marry.
Her lawyer in the UK, Anne-Marie Hutchinson, confirmed that she had boarded a non-direct flight from Dhaka last night although its departure was delayed.
