Accompanied by her younger sister Sheikh Rehana, the Prime Minister then offered prayer at his mazar seeking eternal peace of departed souls of Bangabandhu, Bangamata Begum Fazilatunnesa Mujib and other martyrs of August 15, 1975 massacre.
A smartly turned out contingent drawn from Bangladesh Army, Navy and Air Force gave an honour guard on the occasion.
Sheikh Hasina offered Fateha and joined a munajat seeking eternal peace of the departed soul of Bangabandhu as well as other martyrs of the August 15 carnage.
On this day in 1975, Bangabandhu and most of his family members were killed in this house by a cabal of army officers as part of a long-running conspiracy by anti-liberation forces.
The day is officially observed as the National Mourning Day.
