Former home minister Sahara Khatun passes away

Former Home Minister and Awami League presidium member Advocate Sahara Khatun passed away at a hospital in Bangkok on Thursday night. She was 77.

“She passed away at 11:25pm (local time) at Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok of Thailand,” said sources at Awami League.

Earlier on Monday, Advocate Sahara Khatun was taken to Thailand's capital Bangkok for better treatment by an air ambulance.

Before that she was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of United Hospital as her condition deteriorated.

Sahara Khatun was admitted to the hospital on June 2 with fever and some old age complications.

Advocate Sahara Khatun elected MP thrice from Dhaka-18 constituency.

Expressing deep shock at the death of Sahara Khatun, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said “Sahara Khatun, a soldier of Bangabandhu’s ideals, worked all her life for people’s rights and in establishing democracy.”

She also said “I’ve lost a trusted co-fighter.”
