Layla Banu, who was undergoing treatment at the Combined Military Hospital, Dhaka, breathed her last around 7:45 am, said Sufi Abdullahil Maruf, senior information officer of the ministry.
The minister and his wife were admitted to the hospital on June 13 after they were diagnosed with coronavirus.
Though the minister returned home after making recovery but his wife’s condition deteriorated and was undergoing treatment at the hospital where she breathed her last.
Layla Arjmandu is survived by two daughters, one son, six grandchildren and a host of well-wishers to mourn her death.
