Doctors at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) have lost hope of his recovery, his daughter Mum Minti Akhand Noor told bdnews24.com on Sunday night.
"My father's condition is very bad now. The doctors have said it's the last stage. There is nothing to do other than praying for him," she said.
Cancer was detected in Akhand's lung in 2015. He was later treated in a Thailand hospital when the freedom fighter-artist received financial help from the prime minister's fund. He was then given chemotherapy in Dhaka.
His first album 'Lucky Akhand' was released by record label Sargam in 1984.
"Eiye Neel Monihar", "Amay Deko Na", "Ritiniti Jani Na", "Age Jodi Jantam" and "Sumona" are some songs of this album that made him famous.
After his brother Happy Akhand's death in 1987, Lucky withdrew from the music world.
Then, after a decade, he hit the stage again in 1998 with two albums "Porichoy Kobe Hobe" and "Bitrishna Jibone Amar".
He has been a regular in many live music sessions on television ever since.
