We are deeply saddened at the passing away of Atif Zaman, who was enrolled as a student of B. Sc. (Hons) in Physics at IUB, on Wednesday, 28th March 2018. He had been struggling with cancer for several years. Atif took part in the 9th National Undergraduate Mathematics Olympiad 2017, Dhaka North Zone, on behalf of IUB in December 2017 and stood 8th among all participants. His presence will be deeply missed by his friends, and teachers in the university. On behalf of the trustees of IUB, members of the faculty and management, students and alumni, we pray to the Almighty to grant eternal peace to the departed soul and express our heartfelt condolences to the grieved family.
