Author Qazi Anwar Hussain, writer of spy thrillers, detective fiction and adventure novels, and creator of beloved international espionage agent Masud Rana, has died at the age of 85.
He died while undergoing treatment at a Dhaka hospital, according to a Facebook post from his daughter-in-law Masuma Maimura, reports bdnews24.com.
Hussain was hospitalised several times after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last October.
“It came to an end with a brain stroke and heart attack,” Maimura wrote. “He had been on life support since Jan 10. Now, he has left us for good.”
