Pilot Abid’s wife on life support, under 72-hour observation
Afsana Khanom, wife of late Captain Abid Sultan, pilot of the ill-fated US-Bangla Airlines flight, has been put on life support in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Dhaka’s National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital. She was admitted on Sunday morning after suffering a stroke. National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital’s Directors Professor Dr Din Mohammad and Professor Dr Badiul Alam are heading the 12-member medical board overseeing Afsana’s treatment. Dr Md Asaduzzaman, a member of the medical board, told the Dhaka Tribune: “Afsana’s condition is not improving. She is still in danger. We will observe her condition over the next 72-hours.”

Assistant register (ICU) and consultant (Critical Care Medicine Department), Dr Asaduzzaman, added: “Afsana suffered from an ischaemic stroke on March 18 morning and her body’s left side is almost paralyzed.” On-duty doctor Dr Siraji Shafikul Islam said: “On March 18, Afsana suffered another stroke around 11pm. Noticing her critical condition, we had to perform additional operations on her. “She’s now under observation in the ICU,” he added. He also expressed concern over her condition not improving and mentioned that she is a diabetic patient, which is why her recovery has been slow so far. Another on-duty doctor, Ujjol Kumar Mollick, said: “Afsana is receiving the highest degree of attention. She would have received the same level of treatment if she were taken to Singapore. “Her kidneys are functioning well, but she is now in coma. She is being kept under observation for 72 hours. It is difficult to say anything about her condition before that,” he added.
