Awami League Presidium Member and Former Home Minister Advocate Sahara Khatun is being taken to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand for advanced treatment.
Sahara Khatun, who is currently undergoing treatment at the United Hospital in the capital, is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in support of oxygen ventilation.
Her personal assistant Mujibur Rahman confirmed the matter on Wednesday night.
He said we had been contacted at Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok. All kinds of preparations are being taken for this. Doctors have also given clearance to be carried in an air ambulance. If all goes well and instructions come, she is likely to be picked up on Thursday.
Mujibur said Sahara Khatun’s physical condition remains unchanged. She is the same as the day before.
When Sahara Khatun’s condition suddenly deteriorated around 11 am on June 26, she was transferred from the High Defense Unit (HDU) to the ICU again. Her heartbeat almost stopped. Heartbeat had to be brought back by punching. Now she has been placed in support of oxygen ventilation. Earlier, she was brought to HDI from ICU on June 22 as her physical condition improved.
77-year-old Sahara Khatun suffers from various complications of old age including fever and allergies. She was admitted to United Hospital on June 3 at 4.40 am with shortness of breath.
