Mir Quasem Ali was hanged at 10.30pm on Saturday, authorities said
The Kashimpur Central Jail had received the executive order for the media tycoon's death sentence earlier today.
Ali is the sixth Islamist to be hanged for committing crimes during the country’s 1971 Liberation War against Pakistan.
The execution comes around a week after the country's Supreme Court rejected Ali's final review petition.
