Rajshahi, Bangladesh (BBN)-Former BNP lawmaker Nasiruddin Ahmed Pintu, who was serving life term imprisonment in Pilkhana carnage cases, died of heart attack in Rajshahi, a northern divisional city of Bangladesh, on Sunday.
BNP Chairperson expressed her deep shock at the sudden death of the former president of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, student wing of BNP.
The BNP leader died around 12:20pm at Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital while undergoing treatment there, hospital sources said.
He was rushed to the hospital from Rajshahi Central Jail after he complained chest pain in the morning, the sources added.
On November 5 in 2013, Pintu was awarded life-term imprisonment for his involvement in the 2009 carnage of now defunct Border Guard Bangladesh (BDR).
Later in January of 2014, the convict filed an appeal with the High Court, challenging his conviction in the BDR carnage case.
A total of 74 people including 57 army officials were killed during the carnages at Pilkhana, the headquarters of the paramilitary forces of Bangladesh.
