ICT to gather evidence against 195 Pakistani war criminals

Update : 27 Dec 2015, 01:50 PM

The Investigation Agency of International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) will launch investigation against 195 Pakistani army personnel who were accused of war crimes charges immediately after the 1971 Liberation War.

Chief coordinator of the agency Abdul Hannan told the journalists that the 195 Pakistani army personnel should also be brought to justice for committing crimes during the Liberation War in 1971, reports BSS.

He, however, said: “We need to get government' directives before starting investigation as the matter is involved with another country-Pakistan.”

Once the government directives were secured the investigations would be launched, he said.

He added that the primary evidence was gathered against the 195 Pakistanis, who subsequently became prisoners of war (POWs).

Dhaka last month accused Islamabad of failure to honour a 1974 tripartite agreement it signed with India and Pakistan by trying the listed 195 Pakistani soldiers.

The issue comes to discussion after Pakistan denied the atrocities it committed in 1971.
