  • Print


The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 on Tuesday set today to pronounce judgment in the crimes against humanity case against two alleged war criminals from Netrokona, Hedayet Ullah Anju and Sohrab Fakir.
Justice Md Shahinur Islam, Chairman of three-judge panel of the ICT-1, passed the order on Tuesday morning.
The first tribunal on March 7 had said it would pass judgement in the case any day, as both the prosecution and the defence sides concluded their arguments in the case on that day.
On January 10, 2017, the tribunal took into cognizance the formal charge submitted by the prosecution.
At that time, there were three accused in the case, Hedayet Ullah Anju, his brother Enayet Ullah Monju and Sohrab Fakir.  Of the three, Enayet Ullah Monju and Sohrab Fakir were arrested.  However, on January 25, 2017, Monju died of old age complications at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH). Now Fakir is in jail, while Anju is yet to be arrested.
On December 13, 2017, the ICT-1 framed six specific charges of crimes including genocide, deportation, killing and torture against them.  According to the prosecution, the three accused were members of Peace Committee and later formed Razakar Bahini in their locality.  During the War of Liberation, they committed horrendous crimes against humanity in villages of Modhuakhali, Mobarakpur, Sukhari and Madan, among other areas.
