    The Indian Army handed over the mortal remains of a Bangladesh war hero to a delegation from that country on Sunday at Ambasa, 123 kilometres from Agartala.

    Hamidur Rahman died at a young age of 17 during the 1971 Bangladesh War.

    In 1973, the Bangladesh’ government formally issued a citation declaring Rahman as Bir Shreshtha (or, the greatest hero). He was one of the seven warriors who were posthumously conferred the highest gallantry award for their role in the Bangladesh war.

    Hamidur Rahman was a soldier of the then 1st East Bengal Regiment of the Mukti Yuddha Bahini (Liberation Force) . He died in the battle against the Pakistani Army’s 39th Frontier Force near Paharmura in the Maulavi Bazar on October 28, 1971.
