Bhuban Chandra Shil, 52, who was injured when a group of terrorists opened fire indiscriminately on the streets of Dhaka, succumbed to his injuries on Monday.  

He died at the intensive care unit (ICU) of a private hospital in the capital's Dhanmondi at around 10:30 am. He was on life support at the time.  

Tapas Majumder, brother-in-law of  Bhuban Chandra Shil confirmed it.

Meanwhile, the family members struggled  to cover his expensive medical costs.  

Bhuban, who was working as a legal adviser at a private company, underwent a three-hour-long brain surgery from 8:45 pm to 11:45 pm on Saturday. The physicians stated that they would provide a report on the success of the surgery after 72 hours of monitoring. 

However, his condition began to worsen at 11:00 am  Sunday. The physicians noted that Bhuban was not responding to treatment at that time. 

Bhuban’s wife, Ratna Chandra Shil, and his only daughter, Bhumika Chandra Shil, were staying in the hospital since he was shot. A group of terrorists fired indiscriminately at the private car of top terrorist Tarik Saeed, also known as Mamun, in the Tejgaon industrial area on Monday night.  

During the incident, Bhuban, who was on his way to Arambagh on his motorcycle, was shot in the head.   

Bhuban was taken to Samorita Hospital first  and later transferred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Relatives moved him to Popular Hospital around 1:30 am, where he was put on life support.
