Former state minister Murad Hasan injured as ceiling fan falls on him

He is currently at home under the supervision of a doctor

Former state minister Dr Murad Hassan sustained injuries in his head when a ceiling fan fell on him at his home in Jamalpur late on Thursday.

The incident was reported from the district’s Sarishabari upazila.

The lawmaker was at a meeting with his supporters when the ceiling fan fell on his head, said Murad’s personal assistant Zahid Naeem.

He was given medical care by doctors from Sarishabari Upazila Health Complex after the incident, said Debashish Rajbangshi, resident medical officer of the facility.

“His forehead was severely injured and he needed three stitches,” he added.

Dr Murad Hassan is now under the supervision of a doctor at his residence.

The Jamalpur 4 MP came under huge criticism after making some derogatory remarks on BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, acting chief Tarique Rahman and his daughter Zaima Rahman.

Also, a two-year-old phone conversation of the state minister with actor Mamnun Hasan Emon and actress Mahiya Mahi went viral on social media. In that audio clip, Murad was heard making some derogatory remarks on the actress.

In the wake of the incidents Murad resigned as state minister for information and broadcasting in December last year and also returned his red passport.

He was refused entry to at least two countries after he left Bangladesh. The refusals compelled him to return to Bangladesh.
