Kazi Shamsuddin Bachchu, a friend of Sheikh Kamal, hands over a sitar to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for display at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum. Kamal, Bangabandhu's eldest son, had given the musical instrument to Bachchu over 40 years ago to have it repaired from India. But on August 15, 1975, he was brutally murdered along with most of the family members. Bachchu's brother Kazi Moinuddin Raj and artist Kuhu were also present during the occasion yesterday at the Gono Bhaban. Photo: PMO
