Asiful Haq further said that his father’s body would be taken to his village Nazipur in Naugaon by afternoon. He will be buried after Namaz-e-Janaza in his family graveyard by evening.

Aminul Haq wanted to contest the upcoming 12th national elections with the nomination of Awami League. Failing to secure the ruling party nomination, he submitted nomination papers as an independent candidate. However, the Returning Officer and the Election Commission (EC) canceled his nomination papers citing various discrepancies.

Later, Aminul Haq filed a writ in the High Court challenging the decision of the Returning Officer. After hearing the writ on Wednesday, the court rejected the decision of the Returning Officer and declared his candidature valid. He was then allotted the ‘Eagle’ election symbol. He died a day after receiving the symbol.
