Bangla movie actor and comedian Tele Samad has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) hospital in Dhaka.

He was taken to the ICU on Saturday, Tele Samad’s oldest daughter Sohela Samad Kakoli said.

Earlier on December 11, the noted comedian Tele Samad was admitted to the high dependency unit (HDU) of Square Hospitals in the capital and later shifted to the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on December 19.

Confirming the news, his eldest daughter Sohela Samad Kakoli at that time said: "He was admitted to the hospital on December 4 with difficulty in food ingestion due to low count of platelet in his blood."

"Later, he was shifted to the HDU unit and placed under the care of an endocrinologist when his condition deteriorated," she added.

She requested the countrymen to pray for the quick recovery of the noted comedian. 

Last year, he had undergone bypass surgery in the US.
