The health condition of senior journalist Mahfuz Ullah remained critical on Monday.
‘His condition remains critical,’ her daughter Nusrat Homaira, who is accompanying him at a Bangkok hospital, told New Age at about 3:15pm on Monday.
Mahfuz Ullah, 69, who has been suffering from complications in heart, kidney and lung, is now undergoing treatment at the Bumrungrad International Hospital.
All medication to him was suspended as his condition deteriorated on Sunday, said her daughter.
He, however, responded to family members midnight past Sunday, she added.
Nusrat said his father had dialysis on Monday morning.
The journalist was earlier admitted to the Square Hospital in Dhaka with chest pain on April 2. He was flown to Thailand on April 10 for better treatment.
Former president of Bangladesh Student Union Mafuz Ullah, also a writer and columnist, has been well-known for his critical views in TV talk-shows.
He recently authored books on the Bangladesh Nationalist Party founder Ziaur Rahman and its incumbent chairperson Khaleda Zia.
Before he was hospitalised he was working on a book about MAG Osmani, commander-in-chief of the Bangladesh Forces during the country’s War of Independence.
