Latifur Rahman was laid to rest at the capital's Banani Graveyard last night.
Earlier in the day, his body was brought from Cumilla and taken to his Gulshan residence in the capital around 8:30pm.
The namaz-e-janaza was held at Azad Masjid in Gulshan around 9:30pm after Esha prayers. Later, he was laid to eternal rest beside his daughter Shazneen Rahman, who was buried next to his grandson Faraaz Ayaaz Hossain. Faraaz was brutally killed by terrorists during the July 1 terror attack at the Holey Artisan Bakery in Gulshan in 2016.
Relatives, friends and well-wishers went to the graveyard to have the last glimpse of Latifur.
Before the namaz-e-janaza, Zaraif Ayaat Hossain, another grandson of Latifur Rahman, stood in silence. On behalf his family members, he urged all to pray for the salvation of the departed soul.
Mentioning his brother died exactly four years ago, an emotional Zaraif said, "Our grandfather has left us on the same day … Please pray for him."
A munajat was offered there.
