NSI’s ex-acting DG indicted for war crimes

The International Crime Tribunal-1 today framed charges against Oahidul Haque, former acting director general of National Security Intelligence (NSI), for allegedly committing crimes during the Liberation War.  

The three-member tribunal led by Justice Md Shahinur Islam framed a single charge against Oahidul, who allegedly worked for Pakistani Army during the Liberation War and committed crimes in Rangpur in 1971.

The tribunal also fixed November 24 to start trial against him with recording of prosecution’s opening statement and testimony of prosecution witnesses.

Police on April 24 last year arrested Oahidul, also a former additional inspector general of police, from Gulshan area in Dhaka hours after the ICT-1 issued an arrest warrant against him in the case.

Oahidul, now 70, was allegedly involved in the killing of around 500 to 600 people near Rangpur cantonment on March 28, 1971.
