24 May 2016 The first female vice-chancellor of Bangladesh’s top engineering university, BUET, has died.

Bangladesh Ambassador Saida Muna Tasneen told that Prof Khaleda Ekram breathed her last early on Tuesday morning in Bangkok.

The 66-year old professor was suffering from “non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a kind of cancer, and other related medical complications”.

For the last 10 days she was battling for life at the Bangkok General Hospital.

She died around 3am.

The embassy in a statement said they were completing all formalities before sending the body to Dhaka by Bangladesh Biman flight on Wednesday.

The ambassador, who is a former student of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), has been taking care of her treatment “personally”.

She recalled the professor was a “highly qualified and very dynamic” teacher.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had earlier granted Tk 2 million from her ‘Special Fund’ to support the treatment, according to the embassy.

Her condition was deteriorating fast and she was flown to Bangkok from Dhaka in a critical condition by emergency air ambulance early on May 14, the embassy said.
