Verdict on four Noakhali razakars on Tuesday
The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) will deliver its judgment on Tuesday on the trial of four men for their alleged involvement in crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War in Sudharampur upazila of Noakhali. The three-member bench led by Justice Md Shahinur Islam on Monday fixed the date, said prosecutor Jahid Imam. The four accused are Amir Ahmed alias Amir Ali, Abul Kalam alias AKM Mansur, Md Joynul Abedin and Abdul Kuddus. Of them, Abul Kalam is still on the run. On February 6, the tribunal concluded the hearing of arguments from both sides on the trial of four men for their alleged involvement in crimes against humanity conducted during the war in 1971 in Noakhali's Sudharampur and kept the verdict pending for any day. The prosecution pressed charges against five people, including the four in the war crimes case. As another accused of the case, M Yusuf, died after the pressing of the charges, the deceased was not indicted. On June 20, 2016, the tribunal framed three specific charges against four people for their alleged involvement in crimes. The investigators started the probe against the five suspected war criminals on November 16, 2014 and submitted a report before the prosecution on August 31, 2015. Three charges include killing of over 100 people, including 41 of Sonapur and Sreepur villages, in Sudarampur on June 15 in 1971.
