nsnews online Desk: Gaibandha-1 MP Golam Mostafa has succumbed to the injuries he suffered in a Tangail road accident in November.He died at Dhaka’s Combined Military Hospital around 8:30pm on Monday, said Sundarganj Municipal Mayor Abdulla Al Mamun.
President Md Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Speaker of the House Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Deputy Speaker Fazle Rabbi Miah have expressed their condolences over Mostafa’s death.
Mostafa was injured in a road accident as he was travelling to Dhaka from his constituency by microbus on Nov 18. Four, including the MP and the driver, were injured when the microbus collided head-first with a bus headed for Rangpur in Tangail’s Natiapara.
Mostafa was moved from Tangail Sadar Hospital to Dhaka soon after the accident due to a critical head injury. His condition improved slightly after he was brought to the Combined Military Hospital.
But the representative from Sundarganj eventually succumbed to the injuries a month afterwards.
Mostafa, who had been the general secretary of the Sundarganj Awami League for a few decades, received the party’s backing for the bypolls scheduled after the murder of former Sundarganj MP Manjurul Islam Liton on Dec 31 of last year. On Mar 22 of this year, Mostafa beat a Jatiya Party candidate for the seat.
