Former law minister and Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Abdul Matin Khasru, MP, was put on life support at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on Tuesday morning as his health condition deteriorated.

Khasru, who was diagnosed with Covid-19, was under treatment at the hospital from March 16. Recently he became corona negative but was still under treatment because of the other complications.

“Khasru sir was put on life support at 11.30am from the intensive care unit (ICU). He was shifted to a regular cabin on March 31 as his condition improved. Later on April 6, Khasru sir was again shifted to ICU as his condition again worsened,” Advocate Shamim Khan, a member of Advocate Abdul Matin Khasru Associates, told BSS.

Khasru, a five-time lawmaker from Cumilla-5, gave sample for Covid-19 test on March 15 and on March 16 he was diagnosed as coronavirus positive and admitted to CMH.

He was elected SCBA president for 2021-2022 on March 11.
