A cancer patient committed suicide jumping from the eighth floor of Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) this morning.
Nurunnabi, 42, jumped off the eighth floor of the DMCH building around 10:00am, the victim’s son Rakibul Hasan told The Daily Star.
Hailed from Laxmipur Sadar upazila, Nurunnabi went to the DMCH with severe stomach pain around 3:00am today but the authorities did not admit him citing seat crisis even after seven hours, Hasan said.
Being frustrated, Nurunnabi took his own life, the son claimed.
"I was busy in the admission process when my father jumped from the building," Hasan said.
Nurunnabi was diagnosed with blood cancer on August 15.
