BNP Standing Committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury and some leaders of the party’s Chattogram City unit had a close call when a lift crashed at the Chattogram Medical College Hospital (CMCH) in Chattogram.

The BNP leaders had been to the hospital to visit those injured in Sunday’s gas pipeline blast that also left seven people dead at Patharghata in the city.

Amir Khasru said he had taken lift 3 along with some other party leaders to get down from the fifth floor of the hospital around 1:50pm when the accident occurred. “Luckily, no-one was injured,” he said.

Lift operator Sattyapriyo Barua said “technical problem” caused the lift to crash.

During the accident, Khasru was accompanied, among others, by Chattogram City unit BNP President Dr Shahadat Hossain, Vice-President MA Aziz, Senior Joint General Secretary SM Saiful Islam, Joint Secretary Yasin Chowdhury Liton and former president of Jubo Dal Kazi Belal.
