The investigation agency of the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) has finalized its report on the probe into the alleged crimes against humanity committed by five Gopalganj war crimes accused. 

The five accused include Motaher Uddin Shikder, 65, Md Enayet Hossain Miah, 65, Nizamul Haque Miah, 68. The agency refrained from revealing the identities of the remaining two for the purpose of investigation. 

However, another accused, ABM Rafiqul Alam, 71, died due to old age complications in jail on January 1, 2010. 

The agency’s Chief Coordinator Abdul Hannan Khan and Co-Coordinator Sanaul Hoque disclosed the information at a press conference held in Dhaka on Tuesday. 

The investigation agency brought four charges, including murder, abduction, torture, arson attack and looting against the accused.

All of them were involved with the politics of the Muslim League during the 1971 Liberation War though the four alleged war criminals are now Awami League supporters, said officials.
