In Jessore, Sima Khatun, 35, died while she was being taken home at Chougachha upazila yesterday afternoon.

She was admitted to the Upazila Health Complex a week ago, said her father-in-law Mofizur Rahman. After undergoing treatment there for two days, she was shifted to Ibn Sina Hospital for better treatment.

Mofizur said Sima was kept at that hospital’s Intensive Care Unit for the past five days. As her condition did not improve, her family decided to have her released and take her home. But she died on the way.
