BDR man dies of 'liver cirrhosis'
A Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) jawan died of 'liver cirrhosis' at BDR hospital yesterday.
The dead was identified as Subedar Sheikh Habibur Rahman of 18 Rifles Battalion in Rangamati, says a BDR press release.
Habibur was admitted to Combined Military Hospital, Chittagong on October 20 last year with liver ailment. After two-days of initial tests he was brought to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) through the hospital at BDR headquarters on October 22 and was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.
Meantime, he received treatment from medical experts in both BDR hospital and DMCH, the release said.
As his condition deteriorated, he was later admitted to BDR hospital on May 12 this year. He died yesterday while undergoing treatment at the hospital.
The body of the deceased was sent to his village home at Depulia in Barisal Sadar, the release added.
The government on Thursday formed a three-member committee headed by a deputy secretary of the home ministry to investigate the causes of suicide and other unnatural deaths of BDR jawans after the mutiny at the Pilkhana BDR headquarters.
