Shamim Ahmed, father of five-year-old Ayaan, who passed away at United Medical College Hospital following his circumcision, has sought help from the Detective Branch of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police alleging that he was intimidated and forced to withdraw the case he had filed over the incident.

He went to the DB office on Minto Road in the capital on Sunday to file a complaint.

Shamim Ahmed said he will submit a written complaint to DB chief Harunor Rashid.

Shamim Ahmed said: “I am being threatened in various ways to withdraw the case, and the police are not arresting the accused. In such a situation I came to the DB office. I will make a written complaint. Hopefully, the DB will arrest the accused.”

Ayaan was taken to United Medical College Hospital on Madani Avenue in Badda by his father, Shamim Ahmed, for circumcision on a Tk10,000 package on December 31. 

Ayan was given full anaesthesia there, reportedly without parental consent.

When, several hours after the operation, he still was not conscious, the hospital moved him to its Gulshan branch.

Following seven days of keeping Ayaan on life support, doctors in the paediatric intensive care unit declared him dead late on January 7.

The anaesthesia was administered to Ayaan by Dr Sabbir Ahmed while Dr Mehzabin conducted the circumcision procedure.
