Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq has said the government has, to some extent, fulfilled its commitment, given to the people, by executing Bangabandhu’s killer dismissed army captain Abdul Majed earlier today.

He made the statement in his formal reaction to the execution of Majed on Sunday afternoon, reports BSS.

“It is a matter of comfort that we have managed to execute the death sentence of one of the killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on his birth centenary. But we have fulfilled our commitment partially. Implementation of judgement will only be complete once we are able to execute death sentences of all the other killers,” he said.

Majed was executed at Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj on the outskirts of Dhaka at 12:01am on Sunday, more than 44 years after he, along with some other resentful army officers, killed Bangabandhu along with most of his family members in 1975.

“After the execution of the convicts, who were in our custody, on January 28, 2010, our biggest challenge was to catch other fugitive convicts of Bangabandhu murder trial and execute their death sentences. We have given a commitment to the people that we would execute the sentences by bringing those fugitives back from wherever they are hiding. Our work is not done yet,” Anisul added.

Reiterating that commitment once again, the law minister said “We will definitely bring the remaining killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman back to Bangladesh and execute the judgement of our apex court.”
