Health department in Brahmanbaria is looking for a Qatar returnee, who escaped from hospital yesterday evening.
The 30-year-old man went to the emergency unit of Brahmanbaria General Hospital with complaints of fever, cold, cough and breathing problem, our correspondent in the district reports quoting doctors of the hospital.
After primary treatment, he was sent to medicine ward for admission, said Dr ABM Musa Chawdhury, who attended to the patient, said.

The Qatar returnee -- hailing from Chatalpar union in Nasirnagar -- landed in Bangladesh on March 3, said Shawkat Hossain, superintendent of the hospital.
"We informed the matter to district civil surgeon and Nasirnagar Health Complex authorities," he said.
