Quader leaves Dhaka on way to Singapore for treatment
An air ambulance carrying Obaidul Quader left Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at around 3:50pm on Monday.
Earlier, an ambulance carrying Quader set off from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) at 3:22pm, accompanied by a security detail.
The decision to shift him in Singapore was taken after the road transport and bridges minister was examined by renowned Indian cardiac surgeon Dr Devi Shetty on Monday afternoon.
The decision was announced at a media conference by BSMMU Vice Chancellor Kanak Kanti Barua after Dr Shetty briefed the other doctors giving positive opinion about Quader’s overseas medical trip.
