2 absconding war criminals on death row held

The Rapid Action Battalion has said it arrested two fugitives on death row, who were sentenced by the International Crimes Tribunal for committing crimes against humanity in 1971, from Dhaka’s Dakkhinkhan and Savar’s Ashulia area on Monday.

The convicts were identified as Naqib Hossain Adil Sarkar, 69, son of Mahtab Uddin Sarkar alias Gedu Chairman and Mokhlesur Rahman Mukul, 67, son of Abdul Khalek Sarkar of Trishal in Mymensingh.

ASP Imran Khan of RAB headquarters media wing said they nabbed them after separate drives on Monday night.

On December 28, 2015, son of a freedom fighter Yunus Ali of Trishal in Mymensingh district filed a case against nine people including Naqib and Mukul, with International Crimes Tribunal on charge of killing his father after torture.

Several charges including murder, abduction, confinement, torture and loot were brought against them, said ASP Imran.
