Law minister: ICT investigating role of 195 Pakistani soldiers
Law Minister Anisul Huq has said that the government has identified 195 Pakistan Army personnel who committed crimes against humanity during Bangladesh's Liberation War and plans to bring back those who are alive and put on trial. “We know many of the 195 Pakistani Army officials have already died. But we want to bring back those who are still alive and try them,” the minister told a programme at Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies in Eskaton of Dhaka on Wednesday. The programme was organised on the occasion of Genocide Day, in remembrance of the brutality carried out by the Pakistani Army in the “Black Night” of March 25 of 1971. “The trial against the 195 Pakistani Army men was supposed to be held as per the tripartite agreement signed by Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. But they were sent to Pakistan violating the deal. “So, Bangladesh now wants to bring them back and put them on trial. The International Crimes Tribunal has launched an investigation against those Pakistani Army personnel,” Anisul said. Thousands of innocent Bangladeshis were murdered in cold blood on the night of March 25, 1971 during the occupation force's infamous 'Operation Searchlight'. The genocide is one of worst to take place in the last century. Bangladesh has put on trial suspected war criminals, most of whom belong to the Jamaat-e-Islami, a party that sided with Pakistan.
