Probe finds Subhan war criminalNew Age Online
The war crimes investigation agency on Saturday completed its investigation against war crimes accused Jamaat-e-Islami nayeb-e-ameer Abdus Subhan.
‘We found inevitable evidences to prove nine charges of crimes against humanity committed by Subhan in different places of Pabna during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971,’ investigation agency chief coordinator Mohammad Abdul Hannan Khan said.
He was speaking to the reporters at a press conference in the agency office at Dhanmondi Saturday.
Subhan has been charged for committing genocide, murder, torture, arson, abduction, loot, confinement and conspiracy.
The agency has named 43 witnesses and is expected to submit the investigation report to the chief prosecution of the war crimes tribunal on Sunday.
Subhan, now 84, was arrested on September 20, 2012, following a warrant issued for him by a Pabna court and was later shown arrested in the case of committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971.
According to the prosecution, Subhan was the Pabna chapter Jamaat ameer just before the liberation war and had formed Peace Committee, Al-Badr and Razakar (collaborating forces) bahini in his locality and committed crimes against humanity there.
