PM provides financial assistance for Delwar, Khalid’s families


PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday provided financial assistance to the families of slain Bangladesh Chhatra League leader Shaheed (martyred) Kazi Delwar Hossain and noted sculptor late Syed Abdullah Khalid.
The prime minister handed over a cheque for the financial assistance to Kazi Bazlur Rahman, brother of Shaheed Delwar Hossain, at the Prime Minister’s Office, PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said.
She handed over another cheque for the financial assistance to Begum Umme Kulsum, wife of late sculptor Abdullah Khalid.
On February 28, 1984, Delwar Hossain along with another Chhatra League leader HM Ibrahim Selim were killed after a police truck ploughed through a student demonstration near Gulistan in the capital during the anti-Ershad movement.
The students were protesting a decision of the autocratic Ershad regime to hold upazila elections.
