Beaten UBC grad student’s eyes are ‘beyond repair’

Doctors say Rumana Monzur’s vision irreparable after four surgeries

by

Doctors in Vancouver have been unable to restore the vision of a University of British Columbia masters student who was blinded in a brutal beating in Bangladesh. After performing four surgeries, doctors said her eyes were “beyond repair.” Rumana Monzur’s husband has been accused of trying to gouge her eyes out during a savage beating in early June. Monzur will comment publicly on the incident once she recovers, The Province reports. The university has collected more than $61,000 to help Monzur cover her medical expenses. Their goal is to reach $70,000.
