Police arrested 13 people from Ulipur and Rajarhat Upazila on Saturday night over their alleged involvement in a 1971 mass-killing in Ulipur, Kurigram.

A probe committee from the International Crime Tribunal (ICT) inspected the spot on February 7, 2019, where the mass-murder took place in Hatia and upon finding their involvement lodged a case.

Later, police submitted a charge-sheet, and the tribunal issued arrest warrants for the 13 suspected collaborators involved in the mass-killing.

The arrested are, Md Mofizul Haque, Md Saidur Rahman, Md Shahjahan Ali, 70, Md Abdul Kader, 55, Md Abdur Rahim, 64, Md Ishaque Ali, 80, Md Ismail Hossain, 62, Md Akbar Ali, 90, Md Osman Ali, 70, Md Solaiman Ali, 70, Md Nurul Islam, 69, Md Abdur Rahman, 62 and Moqbul Hossain, 70.

The Pakistani Army with their collaborators reportedly abducted at least 697 people from their homes on November 13, 1971, and horrendously executed them, the record says.

When the freedom fighters heard about the abduction and pursued the matter, in retaliation five of them were also killed and buried along with the villagers by the army and their collaborators, locals said.
