Dr Alim’s daughter testifies against Mueen, AshrafNew Age Online
Martyred intellectual Abdul Alim Chowdhury’s daughter Farjana Chowdhury Nipa on Sunday testified that fugitive Al-Badr leaders Ashrafuzzaman Khan and Chowdhury Mueenuddin were involved in abducting and killing her father towards the end of the liberation war in 1971.
Testifying as the ninth prosecution witness against Ashraf and Mueen, Nipa, now 45, and living in the United States of America, told the International Crimes Tribunal-2 that she was a three-year-old child during the liberation war and she knew about her father’s abduction from her mother, paternal uncles, noted personalities and different documents including books and newspapers.
She said that Al-Badr men had abducted her father from their Purana Paltan residence on December 15, 1971 and his body was found on December 18, 1971 at Rayerbazar killing ground in Dhaka.
Nipa, an eye specialist by profession, said that her father’s body was taken to their residence by their relatives and buried in the Azimpur graveyard.
Nipa broke into tears when she described her father’s abduction, murder and bringing over his body to their residence.
She demanded highest punishment for the Al-Badr high commanders who abducted and killed intellectuals, including her father.
She also demanded punishment for Jamaat-e-Islami for being the political party behind Al-Badr in 1971.
Later state defence counsels, Md Abdus Shukur Khan and Salma Hai Tuni, cross-examined her.
As her cross-examination ended, the tribunal adjourned proceedings until tomorrow.
