Abdus Sattar, Freedom Fighter Commander from Shibganj upazila, was mourned by his co-fighters, all of whom fought alongside Bir Shrestha Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir in Sector 7

Freedom Fighter Abdus Sattar, father of Dhaka Tribune Journalist Doel Biswas, breathed his last while undergoing treatment at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH). 

The 65-year-old had been fighting blood cancer for the last four years. On July 9, he was admitted at the RMCH, where he passed away about a week later on Thursday at 12:10am.

Sattar was laid to rest at Alidanga Padma Cemetery on the same day in Shibganj upazila of Chapainawabganj. A police team provided a guard of honor before the burial took place.

Among the many prominent personalities present at the namaz-e-janaza were lawmaker from Chapainawabganj-1 Dr Samil Uddin Ahmed Shimul, Shibganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer Sakib Al Rabbi, Shibganj police station Officer-in-Charge Shamsul Alam Shah and other Freedom Fighters.

Sattar was mourned by his co-fighters, all of whom fought alongside Bir Shrestha Captain Mohiuddin Jahangir in Sector 7 during the War of Liberation.

Freedom Fighter Advocate Abdus Samad, president of the Sector Commander Forum, said: "Sattar's passing is an irreplaceable loss to the nation. He had a nice heart and Freedom Fighters under his command accepted him as a natural leader."

Abdus Sattar is survived by his wife, three daughters and a son. Doel, a sub-editor at Dhaka Tribune, is the youngest daughter of the Freedom Fighter.

Dhaka Tribune expresses its deepest condolences to the bereaved family members of the late war hero.

Relatives, friends and well-wishers have been requested to pray for the salvation of the departed soul.
