Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen today said the government is working to bring back convicted killers of Bangabandhu, at least one more, in Mujib Borsho -- to execute them and implement the court verdict.
"We're hoping we'll be successful. We're working on it," he said adding that one of the killers was executed recently.
Dr Momen made the remarks while talking to reporters after paying tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at his mausoleum in Gopalganj as a mark of profound respect to the memory of the architect of independence who was killed by a cabal of disgruntled army men on August 15, 1975 along with most of his family members.
After placing a wreath, the foreign minister offered doa.
The fugitives are: Col (dismissed) Khandaker Abdur Rashid, Lt Col (relieved) Shariful Haque Dalim, Maj (retd) Noor Chowdhury, Maj (retd) Rashed Chowdhury and Risaldar Moslehuddin Khan. Capt Abdul Majed was hanged recently.
Earlier, the foreign minister sought support from Bangladeshi expatriates living in different countries to bring back the remaining five fugitive convicted killers of the Father of the Nation.
One of them is in the United States while another in Canada, he said.
