Sadeque Hossain Khoka, former mayor of undivided Dhaka City Corporation and BNP vice-chairman, will be buried next to his parents’ grave at Jurain Graveyard as per his wish 

Confirming the matter, Shafiul Azam Khan, brother-in-law of Sadeque Hossain Khoka, said that the decision has been taken by the family to bring his body to Dhaka. 

Mentioning Sadeque Hossain Khoka’s Bangladesh passport has expired two years ago, he said that “he didn’t get any response after requesting for an extension at the Bangladesh Embassy in New York”. 

Now, a travel document is needed from the Bangladesh government to take his body to Dhaka. His family has already applied for a travel document at the Bangladesh Embassy.

The family will decide on the time to bring his body back home after receiving the paper, he said.
