Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep shock and sorrow at the death of former home minister and Awami League Presidium member advocate Sahara Khatun MP.

In a condolence message, the Prime Minister said Sahara Khatun had worked all her life as a soldier of Bangabandhu’s ideology in the struggle for restoration of democracy and materializing the rights of the people.

She provided all assistances, including legal services standing beside the leaders and activists in the critical times, the PM added.

“The country and the nation have lost a competent women leader and honest public leader with her death. I’ve lost a tested and trusted co-fighter (বিশ্বস্ত সহযোদ্ধা),” said Sheikh Hasina.

She prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul and conveyed profound sympathy to the bereaved family members.

Advocate Sahara Khatun died at Bumrungrad Hospital in Thailand at 12:25am on Friday (local time).
