A one and a half year child died from pneumonia in Shaplapur of Bangladesh.
Robi Alam died at around 5 am on Thursday.
His father Rahmat Ullah is missing since he boarded a ‘Malaysia boat’ a year back. The man had dreamed of providing a better life for his infant son but is presumed to be killed by traffickers.
Now his son is also dead, deprived of medical treatment as the single mother could not afford expenses.
An eviction drive in the area by the Bangladesh authorities in late January displaced thousands of refugees worsening an already dire humanitarian situation.
