Eminent journalist and editor of Daily Sangbad Bazlur Rahman was laid to rest at Mirpur Martyred Intellectuals Graveyard in Dhaka with state honor.

Rahman suffered a cardiac arrest last night and succumbed at Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital in the city at the age of 67.

His death sent a wave of shock across the political and social arena including the culture and media. Admirers, friends and colleagues rushed to the hospital to have a glimpse of the down-to-earth journalist who served the media for over five decades. The body of Rahman was taken to Baneshwardi under Nakala upazila of Sherpur district, where a large number of people crowded at his village home and attended in his namaj-e- janaza as well.

Later, the body was brought again to Dhaka at daily 'Sangbad' office. The second namaj-e-janaza was held at Ramna Apartment Complex in the city where his neighbors paid their last respect. Before the burial, a guard of honour was given to Bazlur Rahman for his heroic role in the country's Liberation War in 1971.
