Zafar Iqbal reaches Sylhet
Eminent writer and professor at Shahjahlal University of Science and Technology Md Zafar Iqbal has reached Sylhet. Accompanied by his wife, he landed at the Sylhet Osmani International Airport at 12:45pm on Wednesday. The matter was confirmed by Nazrul Islam, a security officer at the airport. Upon landing, Prof Zafar Iqbal was welcomed by the SUST Vice-Chancellor Farid Uddin Ahmed. From there he will go to his residence at the university campus. In a statement, the professor has said that he does not harbour any anger towards anyone, and wishes everyone well. Around 3pm, he will visit the site at which the program, where he was stabbed, took place. On March 3, Zafar Iqbal was attacked at a program held by SUST by a youth named Foyzur Rahman Faizul. After receiving initial treatment at the MAG Osmani Medical College, he was transferred to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka via a helicopter for further intensive treatment. Upon full recovery, he was released from CMH Wednesday morning, after which he flew to Sylhet.
