Tuesday January 27, 2015 1:55 PM, IANS

The coffin of former Bangladesh prime minister Khaleda Zia's younger son Arafat Rahman KoKo was brought to Dhaka on a flight from Kuala Lumpur Tuesday.

Several senior Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leaders were present at the Hazrat Shahzalal International Airport in Dhaka to receive the body and take it to Khaleda Zia's Gulshan office, reported.

The Malaysia Airlines plane landed at the airport at 11.37 a.m. Tuesday.

Koko's wife, two daughters, uncle Shamim Eskander and senior Khaleda Zia aide Mosaddek Ali Falu were among those who came to Dhaka on the flight.

He died of heart failure in Malaysia Jan 24.

Koko, convicted in a money-laundering case, had been staying abroad since 2008.

He was sentenced to six years in prison and fined 190 million taka (about $2.5 million) for laundering money to Singapore between 2004 and 2006, when his mother was prime minister.
