Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and four national leaders, marking the Jail Killing Day.
The four national leaders are Tajuddin Ahmed, Syed Nazrul Islam, Captain Monsur Ali and AHM Kamruzzaman.
The Prime Minister placed wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of Bangabandhu Memorial at Dhanmondi Road No 32 in the morning.
She first laid a wreath as the Prime Minister at the portrait of Bangabandhu around 7.00 am.
After placing the wreath, she stood there in solemn silence for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memories of the national leaders.
Later, flanked by central leaders of the party, Sheikh Hasina placed another wreath as the President of Awami League (AL) at the portrait of Bangabandhu.
On this day in 1975, the killers of Bangabandhu stormed into the Dhaka Central Jail in the early hours and killed the four national leaders, who led the Liberation War in absence of Bangabandhu in 1971 and snatched the victory for the nation.
