A sixth-grader girl died of dengue fever on Thursday in Santhia upazila of Pabna. The deceased Bipasha Pal hailed from the Ganghati village.
The 12-year old girl was admitted to Pabna General Hospital with fever around a week ago. She was later diagnosed with dengue fever, said upazila health official Dr Mojaffor Hossain.
Bipasha was released from the hospital on September 1 after undergoing treatments for around a week, her father said.
“However, she fell sick again on Thursday morning and died on her way to a local hospital,” he added.
Bipasha was a student of Hazi Jasim Uddin High School and College.
