Family sources said Sadeque Khan, an Ekushey Padak winning Language Movement hero, entered a bathroom of his Baridhara residence in the morning to have a shower. As he was not coming out of the bathroom and responding to repeated calls after so long, family members broke open the door only to find him lying senseless. 

 

He was taken to United Hospital where doctors declared him dead.

The veteran columnist left behind wife, one son and a host of relatives and well-wishers to mourn his death.

His body will be brought to the Jatiya Press Club at 10am on Tuesday so that all can pay their last respects to him.

He will be buried at the grave of his father Abdul Jabbar Khan, Speaker of the Pakistan National Assembly during the Ayub Khan regime, at Banani Graveyard following a namaz-e-janaza at Gushan Azad Mosque after Zohr prayers.

Sadeque Khan, who acted as a film actor in the 50s, also produced some films. He was also the general secretary of East Pakistan Communist Party.

Meanwhile, Jatiya Press Club President Muhammad Shafiqur Rahman and its General Secretary Quamrul Islam expressed deep shock at the death of the veteran journalist.
