A police officer died from Covid-19 at Central Police Hospital Dhaka early yesterday.
The deceased, Suman Ali (38), was inspector (investigation) of Baraigram Police Station in Natore.
He was admitted to the hospital on August 2 after testing Covid-19 positive. He was later put on life-support as his condition deteriorated, says a press release of Police Headquarters.
With him, at least 67 members of Bangladesh Police died from Covid-19 while discharging duties across the country.
Hailing from Chapainawabganj's Shibganj upazila, Suman joined Bangladesh Police as a sub-inspector in 2008. He left behind his wife and daughter.
The body was buried at the family graveyard in his village home.
Suman's father Abdul Latif said his son was an honest officer and did not harm anyone in his service life. He was dedicated to his duty.
He requested all to pray for the salvation of Suman's departed soul.
