Tracking trails of the fugitive killers of Bangabandhu PART-VIII


For the past couple of years, investigative team of Blitz has been running comprehensive research and information-gathering, with the goal of tracking the trails of the fugitive killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. As part of our investigation, we have gathered vital information from several credible sources, including some intelligence sources. Based on these data, we are publishing this serialized investigative report. This is the fourth part of a series of investigative articles, where we eventually have succeeded in finding the current locations of a number of the self-proclaimed killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The self-proclaimed killers of Bangabandhu had also helped Gaddafi’s mission by recruiting fighters from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to joint jihadists forces such as Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, As-Sa’iqa, the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, and the Abu Nidal Organization.

It is learned from a source that during his visits to the United States and the UK for seeing his daughters, who were studying in those countries, Khandakar Abdur Rashid was buying sensitive intel from a number of contacts, on behalf of Gaddafi and later those intel were passed to the Libyan dictator in exchange of handsome amount.

The source further said, Muammar Gaddafi planned to get US President Ronald Reagan assassinated in 1985, and had assigned Khandakar Abdur Rashid to hire contract assassins. Subsequently, Khandakar Abdur Rashid tried to hire assassins by establishing connections with Tambov Gang, a large mafia gang in Saint Petersburg, Russia, offering few million dollars for assassinating President Reagan.

Khandakar Abdur Rashid’s relations with Aisha Gaddafi

Muammar Gaddafi had shifted billions of dollars of his ill-gotten wealth to Khandakar Abdur Rashid, and Gaddafi’s daughter Aisha Gaddafi only was aware of this matter.

Following ouster of Muammar Gaddafi, Aisha Gaddafi, along with other members of the family fled Libya.

Aisha is the only daughter of Gaddafi from his second wife, Safiya Fargash, the mother of seven children. The couple adopted a son and a daughter, Milad and Hana. Safiya fled with her daughter Aisha from the capital, Tripoli, in 2011 to Algeria, which granted them asylum for “humanitarian reasons” before they moved to the Sultanate of Oman. Gaddafi’s daughter married one of his cousins ​​in 2006, a Libyan officer named Ahmed Gaddafi, who belongs to the Qadhadfa tribe from which her father came, and the wedding ceremony was held in the capital, Tripoli, in the presence of a large number of wives of Arab presidents and kings.

Three days after her arrival in Algeria, Aisha had given birth to a baby girl named Safia like her mother’s name. Aisha Gaddafi obtained a master’s degree in law from Al-Fateh University, and began preparing for a doctorate in international law in 2003 from the Sorbonne University in France, before deciding to leave it, considering that “it is absurd to waste time studying something that does not exist,” referring to The US-British war on Iraq at that time.

On April 21, 2021, the European Court removed the name of Aisha Gaddafi, the daughter of the former leader Muammarة who lives in the Sultanate of Oman, from the list of those subject to sanctions in 2011.

The court (based in Luxembourg) justified the decision by proving that Aisha Gaddafi is no longer a threat to international peace and security in the region, and that she no longer participates in political life in Libya and has not resided in the country for years.

The decision to include or remove a person or company from the European sanctions list is taken unanimously by the member states of the European Council, and the sanctions include the prohibition of entering or crossing the European Union territory.

Aisha al-Gaddafi was placed on the European Union blacklist in February 2011, and her name was kept during the list reviews that were carried out in 2017 and 2020. The name of Muammar Gaddafi, who was overthrown and killed on October 20, 2011, is still on this list, according to the French News Agency, also his sons Khamis, Mutasim and Saif al-Arab who were killed during the revolution.

The most famous woman in the Gaddafi family, a forty-four-year-old lawyer, resides in the Sultanate of Oman. The Authorities have allowed her to reside in, on condition that she will never be engaged in any political activity. Aisha inherited from her father his controversial attitudes, and perhaps the most prominent position in her career was her joining the defense team of the late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
