Staff Correspondent: Dhaka University teacher Rumana Manzur, tortured by her husband, returned home on Sunday after taking treatment in Chennai, India where doctors said she might get permanently blind.
The doctors at Sankara Netralaya hospital in Chennai feared that the Rumana might get blind as she lost eyesight in both of her eyes due to torture by husband.
Rumana, assistant professor of Dhaka University‘s International Relations Department, was taken to the hospital in India on June 14 for treatment.
She received serious injuries and tissues of her eyes got badly damaged as her husband, Hasan Sayed Sumon, tried to gouge her eyes out and chewed her nose off at their Dhanmondi residence on June 5.
Quoting eye specialists of Sankara Nethralaya, a specialised eye hospital in Chenna, a family member of the teacher said that both of her eyes were in an incurable condition and she might not get back her vision or be cured even by retina transplantation.
Rumana Manzur will be admitted to LabAid Hospital in the capital, where she was admitted soon after the heinous incident, according to one of her cousins.
Meanwhile, a Dhaka court on Sunday placed Sumon, the detained husband of Rumana Manjur, on one-day fresh remand for quizzing on charge of attempt to murder his wife.
Earlier on 16 June, the same court had placed the accused on a two- day remand.
