14-year after her marriage she gave birth to a cuddling, cute baby but the loving mom died of Corona virus infection around 8am on Thursday leaving the newborn baby orphan just on the 11th day of her birth. 

The hapless mother has been identified as Shipra alias Shilpa Begum (30) wife of Saiful Islam, an employee of Rajshahi Model Hospital and resident of Meherchandi area of Rajshahi city.

Saiful said having no issue even after thirteen-year after their marriage, they were frustrated and they went to India for treatment. At a stage, on the grace of Allah, his wife Shipra got pregnant and gave birth to the cute baby which they named as Irpiza Khan Manha.  

Both Saiful and Shipra were overwhelmed with joy and expressed their gratitude to Allah after getting the child 14-year after their marriage. On June-28, only at the nine day age of the newborn child, Corona virus infection was detected in Shipra's body and she became seriously ill. 

Then she succumbed to death only after two days on July-1 (Thursday).

Wailing Saiful said both their family members were very happy with the cute baby after a long delay but after the death of his wife by leaving the baby at her 11th day of birth, all are now in tears.
