Two Kishoreganj war crimes accused get death

The International Crimes Tribunal-1 on Wednesday handed down death penalty to two war crimes accused of Kishoreganj— Syed Md Hussain and Moslem Pradhan— for committing crimes against humanity during the War of Liberation in 1971.
The three-judge tribunal led by Justice Anwarul Haque pronounced the verdict around 12:15pm while two other judges Justice Md Shahinur Islam and Justice Md Shohrowardi were also present.
Md Moslem Pradhan, 67, one of the two accused, was present in the dock during the verdict announcement.
He was brought to the tribunal in the morning from jail while the second accused, Syed Md Hussain alias Hossain, 64, has remained absconding.
The tribunal directed the home secretary, and the inspector general of police to take help from Interpol to arrest Hussain, if needed.
During the Liberation War, Hussain joined the Pakistan Democratic Party and committed genocide and crimes against humanity at places of the then Kishoreganj sub-division, according to the prosecution.
Moslem was the Nikli union unit commander of infamous Razakar force.
The tribunal on Tuesday set today for delivering the verdict in the war crimes case against the two accused of Nikli thana in the then Kishoreganj sub-division during 1971.
Earlier on March 7, prosecutor Tureen Afroz submitted to the tribunal that the prosecutor had proved all the six charges against the accused beyond reasonable doubts and sought capital punishment for the duo.
The prosecutor submitted formal charges against the duo on December 3 in 2015 and the tribunal took the charges into cognizance on January 7, 2016.
The tribunal indicted them on May 9, 2016 and their formal trial began on June 5, 2016.
The prosecutor produced a total of 23 witnesses and the defence produced only one.
