The nonagenarian politician breathed his last at 7:49pm on Friday at Apollo Hospital in Dhaka
National Awami Party (NAP) President Professor Muzaffar Ahmed has passed away while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Dhaka. He was 97.
Ahmed was the last surviving member of the advisory council of the Liberation War-time government in 1971.
The nonagenarian politician breathed his last at 7:49pm at Apollo Hospital in Dhaka, said party presidium member and former general secretary advocate Enamul Haque.
He had been suffering from old-age related complications for long.
“He was taken to the hospital 3-4 days ago and breathed his last at the ICU of the hospital,” said Haque.
He is survived by wife, NAP vice president Amena Ahmed, and a daughter.
Meanwhile, President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina mourned the death of the veteran politician in separate messages.
