Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Intelligence Wing chief Lt Col Abul Kalam Azad, who was severely injured in a bomb blast during a raid on a Sylhet militant hideout, has died at Dhaka's Combined Military Hospital (CMH). He passed away around 12:05am on Friday, RAB Legal and Media Wing's Senior Assistant Director Mizanur Rahman Bhuiyan told the Dhaka Tribune. His first namaz-e-janaza will be held at the Cantonment mosque after Jumma prayers and the second one will be held at RAB headquarters around 3pm.

Six people, including two police officers, were killed and dozens were injured in a blast near a militant hideout in Sylhet's Shibbari when security forces were trying to flush out the militants on March 25. A second bomb went off shortly near the spot injuring a number of RAB and police personnel who had gone there to investigate the first blast. RAB Legal and Media Wing Director Mufti Mahmud Khan said Azad was severely injured in the second explosion. He and the other injured were immediately rushed to the Osmani Medical College Hospital. Later, after several surgeries, Azad was airlifted to Dhaka’s Combined Military Hospital. CMH doctors said Azad had sustained severe injuries to his head and one of his arteries had been damaged in the blast. A Facebook page has been created for people to remember Azad, RAB Media Wing officer Mizanur said.
