Report on Bachchu Razakar complete
The investigation agency submitted its report to the prosecution on Thursday accusing Moulana Abul Kalam Azad alias Bachchu Razakar, now on the run, of 10 charges of crimes against humanity perpetrated during the Liberation War in 1971.
The charges include genocide, murder, rape, abduction, confinement, persecution, arson, loot, forced conversion and deportation.
Briefing reporters at its office, senior member of the investigation agency Sanaul Haque said, “We’ve found formidable evidence against Bachchu Razakar who committed heinous crimes in Faridpur district and its surrounding areas."
More than 50 prosecution witnesses have been listed against war crimes-suspect Bachchu Razakar to prove the case.
On April 3, the International Crimes Tribunal-2 issued warrant for the arrest of Bachuchu Razakar following a petition by the prosecution.
Later, Bachuchu Razakar went into hiding and the police failed to capture him. “Possibly, the accused have gone to Pakistan through Nepal border,” Sanaul said. “He’ll be tried in absentia if fails to surrender before the court.”
