His brother also said, “Khurshid has lost five teeth and has received injuries on his head. He was carried out x-ray at his tooth and mouth. The reports are yet to come out. He is supposed to carry out CT scan today (Sunday). The decision on his higher treatment will be taken after getting all reports in hand.”
He was admitted to Green Life Hospital in Dhaka after surviving injury in an accident in Bogura early Saturday.
Khurshid was injured when a truck hit his car on the Dhaka-Rangpur Highway at Jhupgari in Bogura at about 3:00am on Saturday while he was returning to a hotel from a reception programme, said his brother Sarwar Alam.
The singer was immediately taken to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital in Bogura. Later he was shifted to Dhaka by an air-ambulance at about 4:30pm.
Khurshid Alam won the Ekushey Padak in 2018 and the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 12th Channel-i Music Awards in 2017.
In his career spanning over nine decades, Khurshid lent his voice to more than 400 playbacks, including popular songs like Churi Korechho Amar Monta, Mago Ma Ogo Ma, Jodi Bou Sajogo, Chumki Choleche Eka Pothe and Nach Amar Moyna.
