Journalist Mahfuz Ullah still alive, says daughter

Senior journalist Mahfuz Ullah is still on life support at a Thailand hospital, his daughter Nusrat Humaira said on Sunday amid rumours of her father’s death.

“My father is still alive but in a very critical condition,” she told UNB over phone. His condition deteriorated last night and doctors stopped giving him medicines around noon, Nusrat said.

She clarified that media reports about Mahfuz Ullah’s death are incorrect. “I’m by his side,” she said. “We’re now waiting for his peaceful departure.”

Earlier in the afternoon, BNP Vice-Chairman AZM Azad quoted family sources and said the journalist had passed away at Bumrungrad International Hospital.

Mahfuz Ullah had been suffering from various ailments. He was flown to Thailand on April 10 for advanced treatment.
