Home minister: Mufti Hannan’s execution anytime
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said there is no legal bar to execute the death penalty on Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (HujiB) leader Mufti Hannan as the president has rejected the clemency plea. "The Kashimpur Jail authorities have started the preparation, Mufti Hannan will be executed anytime," the home boss said while talking to journalists at his secretariat office in Dhaka on Sunday. "There’s no threat of militant attack centring the execution of the militant leader," he added in reply to a query. On March 21, the Supreme Court’s Appellate Division released the full text of its verdict confirming the death penalties of Mufti Hannan and two of his aides. The culprits were sentenced to death for the assassination attempt on Anwar Choudhury, the then British High Commissioner to Bangladesh, during his visit to the Hazrat Shahjalal’s shrine in Sylhet city on May 21, 2004. The attack killed three people and severely injured Anwar. On December 23, 2008, a Sylhet court sentenced the trio to death and two others to lifetime imprisonment for their roles in the attack. The High Court upheld the sentences in February 2016. Hannan was also sentenced to death for the 2001 Ramna Batamul bombing, in which 10 people were killed. The HujiB militant group was formed in 1992 and claims to have carried out at least 14 attacks, killing more than 100 people in the pursuit of "establishing Shariah law in Bangladesh".
