Staff Reporter  :
Bangladesh Police have been working with the Interpol to locate of the killers of Bangladesh's founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
"Many of them have been absconding, including the six who were given death sentences in the (Bangabandhu killing) case. We have so far received concrete information on two absconders - one in the US and the other in Canada," said Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammad Javed Patwary at a briefing at the Police Headquarters on Monday.
"We have been continuing our efforts to identify and arrest them through Interpol. The government is also coordinating with other agencies concerned," he said.
The IGP said some other killers are changing their locations. "Sometimes we get information that some of them are in Libya, or in Pakistan, or in South Africa. We are in touch with Interpol to       determine their exact location," he said.
The six absconding killers are: Noor Chowdhury, M Rashed Chowdhury, Khandkar Abdur Rashid, Shariful Haque Dalim, Moslehuddin Khan, and Abdul Mazed.
Sources at government agencies said Noor currently is now residing in Canada and Rashed in the US. There is a speculation that Moslehuddin may be in the US but there is no official confirmation.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Law Minister Anisul Huq are taking various initiatives to locate and return of the killers to face punishment.
The repatriation process has seen little progress since the killers were sentenced to death in absentia in 1998, and the Supreme Court upheld the death sentences rejecting all the appeals in the case in 2009.
Self-confessed Bangabandhu's killer Rashed Chowdhury fled to the US and was granted political asylum. He is currently living in California, Washington officially informed Dhaka of Rashed's status in 2015.
