Md Rafiqul Islam, former chief cashier of The Daily Star, passed away early yesterday.
He had been suffering from heart disease along with other physical complications for one month, says a press release.
Rafiqul Islam served the newspaper from 1991 to 2014. His namaz-e-janaza will be held today after Zohr prayers in a mosque adjacent to his Dhaka residence -- House: 41, Road: 1, Block: C, Section: 12, Mirpur.
The Daily Star family express deep shock at the demise of Rafiqul Islam, and prays for the salvation of the departed soul.
