Seven people have been given death sentences by a tribunal for a range of crimes against humanity, such as rape and murder, they committed in Bagerhat during the 1971 Liberation War. 

A three-member International Crimes Tribunal panel led by Justice Md Shahinur Islam handed down the verdict on Thursday.

Three of the seven convicts – Khan Akram Hossain, Sheikh Md Ukil Uddin, and Md Mollah – were present in court during the delivery of the verdict. 

The other convicts – Khan Arshad Ali, Rustom Ali Molla, Sheikh Idris Ali, and Sheikh Rafiqul Islam Babul – are fugitives. 

There were several war crimes charges against the defendants. The tribunal considered the complaint and began the trial process on May 31, 2017.
