Wahida Khanam was seriously injured in an attack by miscreants who broke into her official residence in Ghoraghat

Doctors at the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital in Dhaka have said Ghoraghat Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Wahida Khanam’s condition has improved further as she is now able to take liquid food from her mouth.

Dr Mohammad Zahed Hossain, chief of the medical board formed for the treatment of the UNO, disclosed this while talking to the media on Tuesday, reports Bangla Tribune.

“UNO Wahida has been taking liquid food from her mouth while being in observation at the High Dependency Unit (HDU) of the hospital. Her senses are completely normal now and other conditions have shown signs of improvement. Only her right hand made no significant improvement, but physiotherapy is going on. Only time can tell how much improvement was achieved from the physiotherapy,” he told the media.

Replying to queries on when she might be transferred from the HDU, Dr Mohammad Zahed Hossain told Bangla Tribune: “We are looking into the possibility of shifting her to a cabin. But, she has been kept at the HDU as there are concerns about her security. A decision in this regard will be taken on Wednesday. The medical board will decide whether she will be shifted to a cabin or not.”

Asked whether the government official was now out of danger, the doctor said: “It is hard to tell whether she is out of danger now. But, her condition has improved in almost all parameters.”

Earlier on Monday, UNO Wahida Khanam was transferred from the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to its HDU as her condition improved. 

On Thursday, Wahida Khanam was seriously injured in an attack by miscreants who broke into her official residence in Ghoraghat.

Her father, Omar Ali, was also injured in the gruesome attack. They were taken to Rangpur Medical College and Hospital.

Later, the UNO was airlifted from Rangpur to Dhaka by a Bangladesh Air Force MI-171SH helicopter.

On Friday, UNO's brother Farid Uddin lodged a case in connection with the attack against unknown assailants at Ghoraghat police station.
