A 52-year-old Bangladeshi, who recently returned from India, died at Jashore Chest Disease Hospital on Friday evening.

The deceased was identified as Imdadul Haque, son of Barek Molla of Raninagar upazila in Naogaon district.

Palash Kumar Das, supervisor at Jashore Chest Disease Hospital, said that Imdadul had gone to India with his wife for medical treatment as he was a cancer patient.

As he was a last stage cancer patient, doctors in India asked him to go back. On May 24, the couple returned to the country through Benapole land port.
