The 48th death anniversary of Bir Pratik Rejaul Karim Manik will be observed on Thursday. 

On the occasion, a fateha will be offered to him and wreaths will be placed on his grave at Azimpur new graveyard in the capital.

A milad mahfil will also be held at Maghbazar mosque in the capital on the day. All his relatives and well-wishers are requested to attend the programmes. 

On the day in 1971, he laid down his life during a face-to-face flight against the occupational forces of Pakistan on Bharadubi Bridge in Manikganj.  

He was the commander of Dhaka (east) guerilla unit. At that time, he was also a third-year student of the History Department of Dhaka University. 

Manik was the only son of his parents — late Wazeed Ali and Razia Ali.
