We deeply mourn the passing away of Mayor Annisul Huq. His courage and vision for revitalising the city will be remembered with gratitude. Huq was a popular television host, early in his career. He became a successful entrepreneur and was elected to the office of the Mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation in 2015. He passed away on 30 November 2017 in a hospital in London due to cerebral vasculitis.
Huq was loved and respected by all. He is survived by his wife Rubana Huq, and three children - Navidul Huq, Wamiq Umaira and Tanisha Fariamaan Huq.
