Former mayor of undivided Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Vice-chairman Sadeque Hossain Khoka was laid to eternal rest at Jurain graveyard in the capital.
According to his last wish, he was buried beside his mother’s grave around 7:00pm on Thursday.
Earlier, the body of former mayor arrived in Dhaka from New York on Thursday morning. An Emirates Airline flight carrying his body reached Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 8:26am.
Khoka breathed his last while undergoing treatment for cancer in New York earlier this week, after suffering from kidney cancer since 2014.
