Renowned Industrialist Abdul Monem, the managing director and chairman of Abdul Monem Limited (AML), has passed away at a hospital in Dhaka. He was 85.

He breathed his last at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) around 10am on Sunday, confirmed his son Mainuddin Monem, who is also the company’s deputy managing director-I.

Monem left behind his wife, two sons, three daughters and a host of relatives and admirers to mourn his death.

A veteran civil engineer who founded the conglomerate in 1956, Abdul Monem was admitted to the hospital on May 17 after he suffered a stroke, according to media reports.
