When Khan Sr. had come to know that Bibhas had left his bank job, he offered him to work for him and look after the family’s finances and financial investments since he had a thorough knowledge of financial matters. Salman along with his family paid a warm tribute to Bibhas. Bibhas is survived by his wife and mother who reside in Virar.
May his soul rest in eternal peace!
