2 razakars to die for war crimes in Kishoreganj
A special tribunal has sentenced two collaborators to death for their involvement in the murder of over 26 people, the abduction and detention of 11 people and the arson and looting of some 250 houses during the 1971 Liberation War in the then Kishoreganj sub division. The three-member International Crimes Tribunal headed by Justice Anwarul Haque pronounced the judgment on Tuesday afternoon, in the presence of Muhammad Moslem Pradhan, 66, one of the convicts. The other convict, Syed Mohammad Hussain alias Hossain, 64, is absconding. Hussain, the younger brother of convicted war criminal Syed Hasan Ali, was the commander of the Nikli unit razakar force during the Liberation War. Moslem was his associate and collaborated with him in committing crimes. The tribunal asked the home secretary and Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest the fugitive, with the help of Interpol, if needed. In the verdict, the tribunal sentenced both convicts to death for the killing of 26 people at Gurui village under Nikli upazila and jail until death for the abduction and murder of freedom fighter Abdul Malek at Purbonagar village. Considering the prosecution’s request to deem rape and forced religious conversions as equal to genocide, Hussain was also sentenced to death for participating in and abetting the murder of 34 Hindu men and the rape of many Hindu women at Dampara. He also received a seven years’s imprisonment sentence for the forceful conversion of Hindu people at Dampara. Hussain was further sentenced to five years’ jail for the abduction and confinement of four people in Nilki and to ten years in jail for mistreating the dead bodies of two freedom fighters. Prosecutor Tureen Afroz said they were happy with the verdict. However, the convicts’ counsel Abdus Sattar Palwan said they may file an appeal with the Supreme Court.
