Late Capt Abid’s widow remains on life support
Doctors at the National Institute of Neurosciences Hospital have confirmed that Afsana Khanom, wife of late Captain Abid Sultan, the US-Bangla pilot whose plane crashed in Kathmandu recently, remains on life support. Afsana, who was brought in from her Uttara residence after she suffered a stroke on Sunday, has been in critical care for the last few days. Joint director of Neurosciences Hospital, Badrul Alam, said: “There has been a change in Afsana’s biochemical parameter – her sodium level has risen. This is the only matter of concern at this moment. “A seven-member medical board has been formed today [Wednesday] and we decided to keep her on life support. But her condition is not improving,” he added. Doctors had informed that her heart, kidneys, liver, and other organs were functioning on Tuesday as well. Her blood pressure is also normal. She remains unconscious. Afsana’s husband, late Captain Abid Sultan, was the pilot of the ill-fated US-Bangla Airlines flight that crashed while landing in Kathmandu, Nepal on March 12.
