Sheikh Russel’s 54th birth anniversary Thursday


The 54th birth anniversary of Sheikh Russel, the youngest son of the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, will be observed on Thursday.

Sheikh Russel was killed along with most of his family members, including his father, on August 15, 1975, when he was a class IV student at University Laboratory School.
