Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Harsh Vardhan Shringla is likely to be replaced by Riva Ganguly Das, currently in charge of MEA's culture arm, the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), in Dhaka.

Mr. Shringla is likely to become India's next Ambassador to the US, replacing Navtej Sarna, who is scheduled to retire at the year-end.

The Indian government is planning a rash of changes in its envoys to a number of key world capitals, reports UNB citing Times of India.

When asked, a diplomatic source in Dhaka said nothing is finalised. "It'll take time."

Shringla was appointed Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka in November 2015.
