Mayor Annisul no more
Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Annisul Huq, who had long been undergoing treatment at a London hospital for neurological problem, passed away there on Thursday. He was 65.
Doctors declared him dead at about 10:23pm (Bangladesh time) after removing the life support, said his personal assistant Mizanur Rahman.
Annisul, born in 1952, was put on life support on Monday as his condition deteriorated. Later, doctors found infection in his lungs.
Annisul was diagnosed with cerebral vasculitis at a London neurology hospital after he was admitted there on August 13. Later, he was taken to the intensive care unit of the hospital.
The DNCC Mayor was shifted from the ICU to another hospital on October 31 for physiotherapy after his condition improved.
Annisul flew to London in the last week of July for personal purpose.
