BNP leader Mirza Abbas hopitalised with abdominal pain


BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas was admitted to a city hospital on Tuesday morning with abdominal pain.

Abbas, also a former mayor of undivided Dhaka city and an ex-minister in Khaleda Zia’s last cabinet, was admitted to the Bangladesh Specialized Hospital in the capital’s Shyamoli area, said BNP’s health affairs secretary Dr Rafiqul Islam.

He said Abbas was suffering from stomach aches since last night. “He was taken to the hospital in the morning as his condition worsened.”

Rafiqul said the BNP leader has already undergone some necessary medical tests and some specialist doctors have also been called from outside the hospital to ensure his proper treatment.

Meanwhile, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir visited Abbas in the hospital at noon.

Fakhrul talked to the doctors and enquired about the health condition of the BNP leader.

Later, the BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir went to the National Institute of Traumatology & Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (Nitor) to visit Natore district unit leaders of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal SM Mostafa Anam and Shafiqul Islam Sumon who were seriously injured in a recent attack reportedly by ruling party cadres.
