Update : 15 Jun 2015, 07:24 PM

Suliman Mollah, an alleged razakar from Shariatpur, was sent to jail by the International Crimes Tribunal 1 yesterday in connection with a case accusing him of committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War.

Suliman, 85, who is the main accused in a war crimes case filed in 2010, was detained from his own residence in Kashipur village of Shariatpur Sadar upazila on Sunday night. 

The arrest came only hours after the tribunal had issued an arrest warrant against him and another suspected war criminal following a prosecution petition. The name of the other suspect was not disclosed to the media.   

After Suliman was produced before the judges, the tribunal ordered to send him to jail, and directed the prosecution to submit a report on July 30 over the progress into the investigation against the two suspects.

According to the prosecution, Suliman was an alleged organiser of Shariatpur Peace Committee and Razakar Bahini. The unnamed suspect was also a member of Razakar Bahini.

Prosecutor Hrishikesh Saha on Sunday said Suliman was also a leader of anti-liberation political party Nezam-e-Islami in 1971 in Shariatpur and contested the 1970’s election but was defeated.
