The stitches were removed from the head of UNO Wahida Khanam who is receiving treatment in a Dhaka hospital surviving criminal attack.
The medical board formed at National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital (NINH) for Wahida Khanam took the decision to remove the stitches on Saturday morning.
Prof Zahed Hossain, head of the medical board, said UNO’s condition has improved further, and she is now able to move her right hand, which was paralyzed due to the attack.
When asked, Dr Hossain said: “We are not going to move her right now, as she may get visitors. We may move her later.”
Earlier on Thursday, doctors removed the stitches from the mouth of UNO.
She had a successful surgery requiring the doctors to address nine places which received serious wounds.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is monitoring the UNO's treatment and all experts are engaged in the treatment process.
