Singaporean doctors have suggested to move Obaidul Quader to Mount Elizabeth Hospital, a senior leader of Awami League has said.

They came up with the recommendation after examining Quader and finding him improving a bit, said Lt Col (retd) Faruk Khan.

But decision has not yet been taken whether Quader will be taken to Singapore or not,” Awami League (AL) deputy office secretary Barrister Biplab Barua told reporters.

Previously, doctors at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), where Quader is being kept, said they would ascertain whether it would be safe to move the senior politician before accepting a referral to a hospital abroad.

The two Singaporean doctors flew Dhaka this evening around 7:40pm, said Group Captain Abdullah Al Farooq, director of Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.

Indian doctors are also supposed to arrive to determine the situation of Quader, ruling Awami League’s general secretary and road transport minister.

Obaidul Quader was admitted to the BSMMU Hospital as he had breathing problem after Fazr prayers today.

He has been diagnosed with three blockages in his coronary artery, according to the BSMMU physicians.

The minister was first taken to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at 8.30 am and then shifted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of BSMMU.
