Zafar Iqbal went to the Computer Science and Engineering department around 12:15 pm, said his personal assistant Joynal Abedin.

He attended a meeting on the Master's admission around 1:00 pm, he said. "Sir (Zafar Iqbal) is now completely fit. So, he has no problem in taking classes."

A young man, Foyzur Rahman, swooped on Zafar Iqbal and stabbed him with a knife at the Mukta Mancha during a celebration programme, 'Robofight,' of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) department on March 3.

The renowned writer was first taken to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital and then airlifted to the Combined Military Hospital on Dhaka on the same day at the directive of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
