Ahmadiyya mosque imam still not out of danger
The imam of an Ahmadiyya mosque in Mymensingh, who was injured in a suspected militant attack, has been undergoing treatment under intensive observation as he is still not out of danger. Imam Mostafizur Rahman, 35, of Khanpur mosque in Ishwarganj was hacked by three assailants indiscriminately with sharp weapons inside the mosque around 9pm Monday, after the end of Esha prayers. The imam was first taken to the Upazila Health Complex and then shifted to the Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) as his condition deteriorated. He was later shifted to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) in critical condition around 5am on Tuesday. “Imam Mostafizur suffered severe injuries in his neck. Excessive bleeding from the wounds in back, hands and abdomen caused his condition critical. He is still not out of danger,” DMCH Resident Surgeon Dr Jesmin Nahar said.
