Deputy Commissioner of Road Transport and Highways Department Information Officer Abu Naser Daily confirmed this to Bangladesh.

Earlier on March 3, Obaidul Quader was initially admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University(BSMMU) hospital following breathing complications. Tests revealed three blockages in his coronary artery. 

Renowned Indian cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty, who flew to Dhaka from Bangalore for Quader’s treatment, examined the Awami League leader at BSMMU and advised on taking him abroad for better treatment. 

Following the advice of the Indian cardiologist, Quader was flown to Singapore on an air ambulance.
