PM pays homage to Bangabandhu, four national leaders on Jail Killing Day

DHAKA Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today paid rich

tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and four

national leaders marking the Jail Killing Day.

In memory of the Father of the Nation and the four national leaders, the

premier placed wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu

Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi Road No 32 here this morning.

Sheikh Hasina first laid a wreath as the prime minister at the portrait of

Bangabandhu around 7 am.

After placing the wreath, she stood in solemn silence there for some time

as a mark of profound respect to the memories of Bangabandhu and the four

national leaders.

Later, flanked by central leaders of the party, Sheikh Hasina placed

another wreath as the president of Awami League (AL) at the portrait of

Bangabandhu.

Later, the leaders and workers of AL's associate bodies, including Awami

Jubo League, Chhatra League, Mohila Awami League, Sramik League, Krishak

League, Jubo Mohila League and Swechchasebok League, as well as other socio-

cultural organizations also paid homage to Bangabandhu and four national

leaders by placing wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation on the

occasion.

On this day in 1975, the killers of Bangabandhu stormed into the Dhaka

Central Jail in the early hours and assassinated the four national leaders �

Tajuddin Ahmed, Syed Nazrul Islam, Captain Monsur Ali and AHM Kamaruzzaman �

who led the Liberation War in the absence of Bangabandhu in 1971 and snatched

the victory for the nation.
