Today is the second death anniversary of Masud Sadique Chullu, a freedom fighter, says a press release.
On this day in 2017, Masud died at Apollo Hospitals Dhaka at the age of 72.
During the 1971 Liberation War, he joined “Crack Platoon”, a special commando squad of the Mukti Bahini, under Sector-2, which shook the confidence of the Pakistan occupation army.
The squad conducted extremely dangerous operations on army convoys and important installations in Dhaka flawlessly.
Each successful operation demonstrated that the long-cherished independence was just a matter of time.
Born on March 29, 1945, in Keshabpur of Jashore, Masud was 26, a fresh science graduate from Dhaka College, when he joined the Crack Platoon.
Valiant freedom fighters Shafi Imam Rumi, Bodiul Alam Bodi, Abdul Halim Chowdhury Jewel, Habibul Alam, Kazi Kamaluddin, Shahadat Chowdhury, Fateh Ali Chowdhury and Mofazzal Hosen Chowdhury Maya were some of the members of this famed platoon.
