Doctors at a hospital in Delhi have described veteran politician Tofail Ahmed’s health condition as “stable” hours after he was flown to the Indian capital for treatment on Friday afternoon.

The Senior Awami League leader and the former minister had been undergoing treatment at Square Hospital in Dhaka after suffering a mild stroke last Monday.

“His condition is stable…we kept him at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for further observation,” said Dr Arun Garg, head of the neurology department at Medanta Multi Super Specialty Hospital in Gurgaon, Haryana under New Delhi.

Talking to the BSS New Delhi bureau chief over the phone, Dr Garg said that he along with his team examined the ailing leader and suggested some medical check-ups.

“Nothing to be worried, hopefully we would be able to send him to cabin bed by tomorrow if everything goes well,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh High Commissioner in New Delhi Muhammad Imran visited Tofail Ahmed, at the hospital. He inquired about his health treatment procedures.

A member of the ruling party’s advisory council, Tofail Ahmed was flown to New Delhi on Friday afternoon by an air ambulance, according to his personal aide Abul Khayer.

The 77-year-old politician was elected lawmaker five times and served as minister in several ministries under the Awami League government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
