The farewell reception of outgoing Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed was held at Dhaka Cantonment on Thursday.

After handing over the charge to newly-appointed Chief of Army Staff General SM Shafiuddin Ahmed, the outgoing Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed was bade farewell in a military manner in the presence of senior officers of the Army.

Earlier in the day, he placed floral wreaths at the Shikha Anirban (the eternal flame) and paid tribute to the martyrs of the country’s war of independence in 1971. He was then given a guard of honor by a smart army contingent at Senakunja and planted a sapling there.
