In June, The Mail on Sunday reported that the complaints against Mr Choudhury, 59, related to his alleged ill-treatment of domestic and office staff. 

He had only taken up the post in March.

Sources also revealed that he was accused of misbehaviour towards his wife Momina, who is 16 years his junior.

Last night, Mr Choudhury did not respond to questions, despite being contacted through the Foreign Office.

Previously, he was UK ambassador to Peru and the British High Commissioner to his native Bangladesh, where he narrowly avoided being killed in a terrorist attack.
