When Bangladesh government, including law enforcement and intelligence agencies are tirelessly looking for the fugitive killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, names of these self-proclaimed killers are surprisingly missing from the most wanted list of Bangladesh Police. Although Bangladesh government has been looking for the fugitive killers of Bangabandhu, not having them on the most wanted list of the law enforcement agencies of Bangladesh may send a wrong message to the citizens of Bangladesh, and as well as the international community, about the very sincerity of Bangladesh government’s efforts in getting those criminals extradited from hidings in foreign countries.
Meanwhile, talking to an English-language daily, the National Central Bureau (NCB) of the police headquarters said the Interpol had issued red notices against five convicts living in Libya, the US, Canada, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe.
Mohidul Islam, assistance inspector general of the NCB, told the English-language daily, he had learned that discussions with those countries to repatriate the killers had made good progress.
“Police are working to identify the locations of three convicts. Our foreign ministry is working to bring them back,” he said.
He further said police had written to different countries, enquiring about whether the three convicts live there. “But most of the countries, including Pakistan, did not reply”.
NCB sources said the government had formed a taskforce to bring back the killers from abroad. The taskforce held a meeting at the Meghna state guest house last year.
This newspaper could not find the details of the Bangabandhu’s killers on Interpol website’s list of people being wanted by the international police organization.
