Bangla Tribune has bid farewell to its sub-editor Monsur Ali who was found dead in his home at Dhaka’s Banasree.

Monsur’s colleagues and friends attended his first namaz-e-janaza at the Bangla Tribune premises in Panthopath after the Zuhr prayers on Sunday.

The 33-year-old will be buried at the family graveyard in Fenchuganj’s Kotalpara in Sylhet, reports Bangla Tribune.

On Saturday, police recovered Monsur’s body from his rented apartment in Banasree.

His flatmate said that he called 999 when he found the door of the apartment locked and didn’t receive any response from Monsur despite repeatedly ringing the bell and calling him.

Meanwhile, his autopsy was completed yesterday at the Forensic Division of Dhaka Medical College Hospital, said its Lecturer Dr Pradip Biswas said.

"A heart attack is most likely to be the cause of his death," he said.

A journalism graduate from Chattogram University, Monsur started his career in 2013 with online newspaper, Orthoshuchok. He joined the Daily Ittefaq shortly after working in 'E-barta.com' and 'Techshahar'. He joined Bangla Tribune as a sub-editor in 2017.
