Titumir college student Siddiqur Rahman leaves for India for better treatment. He has almost lost both of his eyes in a police attack during a university student’s demonstration in Shahbagh on July 20.
Before going to India, he was admitted to National Institute of Ophthalmology in Agargaon, and later the authority suggests Sankara Nethralaya Hospital in Chennai, Nayeb Ali, Siddiqur’s elder brother, told the press. Nayeb Ali and a doctor will escort him to Sankara Nethralaya Hospital in Chennai of India, the brother said.
Some friends of Siddiqur will go to Hazrat Shah Jalal International Airport to see him off.
The government is confirmed to bear all the expenses of his treatment. The medical procedure will commence after some medical tests are done which is supposed to begin on Friday, an official of the ministry of the health and family welfare told the reporter.
As seen in a video footage, Siddiqur’s eyes were damaged after a policeman shot a tear gas canister directly at the agitating college students at Shahbagh on July 20. Siddiqur collapsed on the street instantly.
He cannot see with his right eye. Doctors said there was still hope, no matter slim, for the left eye as it reacted to light here and there when the doctors expelled the wrap on Sunday.
A three-member probe committee is formed to investigate the incident. If this one fails to draw any satisfactory progress, another committee will be formed.
