Some people and organizations from both home and abroad were indirectly involved in the conspiracy, says the prime minister

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday told parliament that the government was actively considering forming a commission to identify the other conspirators of the August 15, 1975 assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Her remarks came while responding to a starred question from Awami League MP Mohd Abdullah of Lakshmipur 4 constituency, reports UNB.

The prime minister said that much information on the conspiracy behind the killing of the Father of the Nation was exposed during the two consecutive terms of the Awami League government.

"According to the information, some people and organizations from both home and abroad were indirectly involved in the conspiracy," she said.

Hasina said that efforts were on to bring Bangabandhu’s killers, who are now hiding abroad, back home.

An inter-ministerial committee formed in this regard, comprising officials from the law, foreign and home ministries, was working in a coordinated way for that, she said.

The prime minister added that a petition was also placed before the Canadian Federal Court of Justice for providing information about how Noor Chowdhury, a convicted fugitive in the Bangabandhu assassination case, was living in Canada.

Diplomatic and legal measures were taken to bring another convicted fugitive, Rashed Chowdhury, back from the US, she said, adding that lawyers were appointed there to take the necessary legal measures.

Besides, the taskforce was working to bring other convicted fugitives back home and a red alert was issued through the Interpol to arrest them, Hasina told the House.
