2 Netrokona war crimes suspects land in jail
The International Crimes Tribunal-1 this morning sent two war crimes suspects of Netrokona to jail after police produced them before it.
Police yesterday arrested the duo-- Ahmmad Ali, 72, and Abdur Rahman, 72, hours after the tribunal issued arrest orders for seven men of Netrokona's Purbadhala upazila, who allegedly committed crimes against humanity during the country's Liberation War in 1971.
The three-member tribunal led by Justice M Enayetur Rahim also fixed October 1 for passing next order in this regard around 11:15am today.
Prosecutor Sabina Yasmin Munni said an investigation which opened against the seven in February last year had already found evidence of their “involvement” in crimes including murders.
“We sought their arrest for effective and proper investigation,” Munni said.
Shahjahan Kabir, the investigation officer of the case, said the suspects were involved with anti-liberation Muslim League and Nezam-e-Islami in 1971 and later they joined the Razakar Bahini, a force of collaborators.
