Entertainment Report :
Veteran actress Minu Momtaz passed away on Tuesday night in the capital’s Green Life hospital due to Covid-19. Her body was kept at the morgue of the hospital since none of her relatives came to claim it.
She was admitted to the hospital on September 4. The total hospital bill came at around Tk 5 lakhs. Later, Actors Equity helped to hand over her body to her family.
While talking in this regard Ahsan Habib Nasim, General Secretary of Actors Equity, said, “Several news portals reported that Minu Momtaz’s body is in morgue and nobody came to receive it. One out of her three sons passed away years ago. Another one of her sons is a brain stroke survivor, and the other lives in the USA. As a result, no immediate family members of the actor could take care of the issue.”
“Actors Equity requested the hospital authorities for a discount on the bill. We handed over her body to her family only after that,” Nasim also said and adding Minu Momtaz was suffering from kidney disease for a long time and during her recent treatment, she tested positive for Covid-19 and was taken to the ICU, where she breathed her last. The namaz-e-janaza of the actress took place after Asr prayers yesterday and she was laid to rest at Mirpur Martyred Intellectuals’ Graveyard.
In 2018, Minu Momtaz was one of the three artistes to receive government aid of Tk 5 lakhs for her treatment. She worked in several movies during the black and white era of Bangladeshi cinema. For the last four decades, she was working in television.
