Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday morning paid rich tributes to the martyred members of Bangladesh Armed Forces on the occasion of the Armed Forces Day 2018.

The Prime Minister paid the homage by placing a wreath at the Shikha Anirban (flame eternal) at Dhaka Cantonment. 

After laying the wreath, she stood in solemn silence there for some time as a mark of profound respect to the memories of the martyrs, who made the supreme sacrifice during the War of Liberation in 1971.

A smartly-turned out contingent drawn out from Army, Navy and Air Force presented a guard of honour at that time, while the  bugle played the last post.

Earlier, on her arrival at Shikha Anirban, the Prime Minister was received by Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Nizamuddin Ahmed, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat  and Principal Staff Officer (PSO) of the Armed Forces Division (AFD) Lt Gen Md Mahfuzur Rahman.

After the wreath-placing ceremony, Sheikh Hasina, also in-charge of the Defence Ministry, went to the Armed Forces Division (AFD) where the chiefs of the three services made a courtesy call on her.

On her arrival at the AFD, the Prime Minister was received by the PSO and director generals of the AFD.

On this day during the War of Liberation in 1971, the Bangladesh Armed Forces comprising Army, Navy and Air Force, came into being and launched an all-out attack on the Pakistani occupation forces which sped up the victory in the Liberation War.

This historic day is observed as the Armed Forces Day every year since the independence of the country. UNB
