Hadisur to be buried in Barguna after janaza on Tuesday morning

Md Hadisur Rahman, who was killed on March 3 in a rocket attack on a Bangladeshi vessel stranded at a Ukrainian port, will be buried at his family graveyard in Kalatala village in Betagi upazila of Barguna on Tuesday.

His namaz-e-janaza will be held at 10 am Tuesday, said Maksudur Rahman Forkan, Betagi UP chairman and Hadisur’s uncle.

The freezer van carrying Hadisur’s body reached his home at Kadamtala village of Barguna’s Betagi upazila at around 10 pm on Monday.

Hadisur was the third engineer of the vessel MV Banglar Samriddhi.

“My brother’s body arrived at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport carried by a Turkish Airlines flight Airport around 12.30 pm and after all the formalities we left for our village home around 2 pm,” said Golam Mowla Prince, Hadisur’s younger brother.

“We have completed all the arrangements for Hadisur’s burial. Locals are crowding in his house’s yard to get a glimpse of Hadisur who died like a hero in a foreign country,” said his uncle Maksudur Rahman.

The body of Hadisur was scheduled to reach Dhaka on Sunday from Romania via Istanbul but the flight carrying the body failed to take off on time due to heavy snow storm in Istanbul.

Earlier on March 9, 28 surviving crew members of the Bangladeshi ship who were stranded in war-torn Ukraine, arrived in Dhaka.

They went from Ukraine to Moldova to reach Bucharest in Romania, from where they flew to Dhaka.

The Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) ship had been stranded at Olvia port in Ukraine since February 23, following Russia’s invasion of its eastern European neighbor.

Hadisur, third engineer of the BSC ship, was killed in a rocket attack on the vessel. The ship had since then been declared abandoned.

Hadisur’s body was preserved in a bunker near Ukraine as the procedure to bring back the body was being delayed due to the worsening situation in Ukraine.
