PM asks Bangladesh mission in Singapore to help ailing Andrew Kishore

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked the Bangladesh High Commission in Singapore to extend full support for the treatment of legendary playback singer Andrew Kishore.

“The prime minister gave this directive to Bangladesh High Commission in Singapore this noon to supervise overall issue of the treatment of Andrew Kishore, who has been suffering from cancer,” PM’s Deputy Press Secretary Ashraful Alam Khokan told BSS.

Andrew Kishore, the eight-time National Film Award-winning playback singer, is now undergoing treatment at Singapore General Hospital.

He has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, in September last.

Earlier, the premier gave financial assistance of Tk 10 lakh to the eminent singer for his treatment, Khokan said.
