Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday provided financial assistance of Tk 10 lakh for treatment of Ekushey Padak winning veteran actor ATM Shamsuzzaman.
Barrister Biplob Barua, special assistant to the prime minister, and Dr Samanta Lal Sen, coordinator of the National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery, among others, visited Azgar Ali Hospital on Monday morning where ATM Shamsuzzaman is undergoing treatment.
Barrister Biplob Barua handed over the cheque to Shamsuzzaman’s daughter Koyel at the hospital on behalf of the prime minister.

On May 6, ATM Shamsuzzaman was put on life support again as his condition deteriorated.
‘I can’t say that he is completely out of danger. He is suffering from multiple old-age complications. The prime minister has directed us to provide ATM Shamsuzzaman best treatment available in the country. We are trying our level best to treat the veteran actor,’ Dr Samanta Lal told New Age.
