Colonel Nizamuddin, a close confidant of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, breathed his last at his residence in Dhakwa area of Mubarakpur, Azamgarh on Monday morning.
He was 116. He served as Bose’s driver.
Nizamuddin had been with Netaji between 1943 and 1945. He last saw the leader on August 20, 1947 in Burma. He could never meet Netaji thereafter.
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.
