I'm so sorry, NO, I do not think it means "Air force medal", but I'd say this is something to ask the local BanglaDesh consulate - I certainly would. If THEY don't know, you have a problem...Three different names? Not even a billion-to-one shot...
I think it is the title of a judge / advocate in Bangladesh.
However, I also found it elsewhere: "Acting Vice-Chancellor Prof. A.F.M. Yusuf YYY asked students to calm down." http://uk.reuters.com/article/latestCrisis/idUKSP11010720070...
You can find "Mr A.F.M. So and So", Prof. A.F.M. So ans So", and so forth. Do you really think it could stand for "Air Force Medal"? Thanks!
It might mean he was awarded the Air Force Medal - but then again, it might not... Where might he be located - that might help?

Explanation: On the basis that this seems a fairly common abbreviation in BanglaDesh - and the title fairly common in the UK. This might be linked by the commonwealth past of BanglaDesh and its education system; I really don't know.
At all events, it would be wise to wait at least 24 hours, until the Indian sub-continent is fully active again, and you may get some responses from there.
