'Sheikh Russel Day' will be observed across the country on Monday marking the birthday of the youngest son of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The cabinet approved the ICT Division's proposal to celebrate the day every year on August 23.

Sheikh Russel, the youngest brother of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, was born at the Bangabandhu’s Dhanmondi residence on October 18, 1964.

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.
