Veteran communist leader Jasim Uddin Mondal has died at a city hospital on Monday morning. He was 95.

Confirming the news, Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) presidium member Aniruddha Das Anjan said: “The anti-British movement leader breathed his last at the ICU of the Health and Hope Hospital in the capital's Panthapath around 6am.”

The Advisory Council member of the CPB has been suffering from old-age complications for a long time. He was taken to Dhaka after he fell sick at his home in Pabna on September 28.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressed deep shock at the death of the veteran communist leader. 

In a condolence message, the prime minister recalled his role in the anti-British movement as well as in the anti-Ayub movement during the Pakistan rule. 

Sheikh Hasina prayed for eternal peace of the departed soul and conveyed profound sympathy to the bereaved family. 

CPB President Mujahidul Islam Selim and General Secretary Shah Alam also issued separate condolence messages. 

His body will be kept at the Central Shaheed Minar premises at 11am tomorrow to pay tribute. Later, the body will be taken to his home district for burial.

Jasim Mondal was born at Nadia in West Bengal in 1922. He joined the Communist Party in 1940. Later, he migrated to Pabna's Ishwardi with his family after the Partition and helped railway workers build a movement.

He played an outstanding role in organising the Liberation War in 1971.
