Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's driver and a veteran of the revolutionary Indian National Army (INA) 'Colonel' Nizamuddin died today in his native village of Dhakwa here after a prolonged illness.
Born in 1901, Nizamuddin was over 116 years old. He is survived by his wife Ajbul Nisha, three sons and two daughters.
His youngest son Sheikh Akram was by his side when the end came in the early hours today.
'Colonel' Nizamuddin, who had served in the Indian National Army from 1943-45, had proclaimed himself as one of the most trusted lieutenants of Netaji.
Last year, he became one of the oldest people to open a bank account at an age of 116 years.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during Lok Sabha campaign in Varanasi in 2014, honoured him by touching his feet.
