A special tribunal has given death penalties to two Kishoreganj razakars.
The International Crimes Tribunal led by Justice Anwarul Haque gave the verdict Tuesday afternoon to the duo for their involvement in murder of over 60 people, arson and loot during the 1971 Liberation War.
The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) concluded the trial on March 7 after hearing the arguments and kept its verdict pending.
The ICT’s prosecution wing investigated the charges against the two from November 2014 to September 2015.
In May last year, the trial began after the court indicted them of murdering 62 people.
In addition to that, charges of kidnapping and detaining 11, and ransacking and burning more than 250 houses during the Liberation War were also framed against them.
