Railways Minster Mujibul Huq was taken to a hospital as he fell ill while replying to lawmakers’ queries at a session in the Jatiya Sangsad today.
He was rushed to the city’s Square Hospital, parliament sources said.

While reading a scripted answer before the house, his nose began bleeding, and he requested the Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury to consider the rest of the answer to be tabled.
