OBIT: Mobin died in a car crash
It is with a great sense of regret and a heavy heart I have to inform you that dear Imran Chowdhury (Mobin) died in a car crash early this morning near Chouddogram in Comilla.
Innal Illahay Wa Inna Ilaihay Rajeeon
Surely we have come from Allah and to him we shall all return
Mobin who was a free lance sound engineer was returning from the Djuice concert in Chittagong after attending to BLACK's sound requirements, was in a microbus with the band when the accident happened.
With whatever little details of the crash that I have received so far, it appears Mobin died on the spot, while Tony the drummer and Miraz, the BLACK Bassist were rushed in an ambulance and have been admitted with critically injuries at the Orthopedic (Pongu) Hospital here in Dhaka.
I last met Mobin on the night of the Onirbaan Concert, and we shared breakfast together in Moghbazar at about 5:30 on the morning of 17th April 2005. I dropped him off at his parent's home in Dhanmondi, little was I to know that this would be the last time I would see him.
His body is now in Comilla Medical College pending an autopsy (which is a legal requirement in accidental deaths), and funeral plans will be made available as and when I have them.
Please join us for a prayer to the departed soul of Mobin, and also wish the injured members of BLACK a speedy recovery.
I will be writing on Mobin later.
