The International Crimes Tribunal-1 (ICT) has sentenced a Rajshahi man to death for committing crimes during the Liberation War of 1971.

Abdus Sattar alias Tipu Sultan, 66, was arrested on May 15, 2017. Now in jail, Tipu Sultan was given the death penalty for both the charges he was facing. 

The three member tribunal headed by Justice Md Shahinur Islam delivered the 177 page verdict on Wednesday.

On October 17, the prosecution and defense counsels completed their closing arguments in the case. 

Tipu was a member of Islami Chhatra Sangha, the then student wing of anti-liberation Jamaat-e-Islami, and a member of the Razakar Bahini during the war, according to the investigating body.

Tipu was arrested once in May, 1972, under the Collaborators Order-1972, but was released in August, 1974. 

The accused retired in 2011 as an assistant professor from Gopalpur Degree College in Natore’s Lalpur. 

The tribunal framed charges against him on August 8 last year. Tipu Sultan was involved in killing at least 10 people and torturing two. He was also involved in looting and arson attacks on 12 houses in areas under Boalia police station of Rajshahi.
