New Delhi, Aug 8: Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, who has been under attack from Islamic fundamentalists over her writings, returned to the country on Friday, Aug 8. She was whisked away from the Indira Gandhi International airport by security agencies and taken to an undisclosed location, reports said.

Taslima had been staying in Sweden since she left India in March. Last November, she was forced to leave Kolkata (where she had been staying after being exiled in 2007) after a section of Muslims resorted to violence demanding her visa be revoked. The protestors alleged that she had insulted Prophet Mohammed in her novel 'Dwikhandito'.

Later, she was brought to Delhi and kept in an undisclosed location for more than four months.
