The 67-year-old Sirajganj 6 MP breathed his last early morning on Thursday at a hospital in Turkey, his personal aide Ashikur Rahman Dinar told Bangla Tribune.

Swapon was infected with coronavirus and was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Dhaka for several days. He was recently taken to Turkey for advanced treatment.

President Mohammad Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressed deep grief over the death of the MP and extended their deepest condolences to the bereaved family.

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury informed the parliament about the death of MP Swapon at the beginning of the session on Thursday morning. Later, the speaker offered condolences.

Swapon was a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Ministry of Road Transport and Bridges in the 11th National Assembly.
