Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed plans to form an independent commission to identify other conspirators behind the killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“The government is actively considering the formation of a commission to identify other masterminds of the assassination of the Father of the Nation,” the Prime Minister said while replying to a starred question from Awami League MP Mohd Abdullah (Laxmipur-4).
The Prime Minister said many information regarding the conspiracy behind the killing of the Father of the Nation got exposed during the two consecutive terms of the Awami League government.
“According to the information, some people and organisations from both home and abroad had indirectly been involved in the conspiracy,” she said.
PM Sheikh Hasina said efforts are on to bring the absconding killers back home from different countries.
An inter-ministerial committee formed in this regard comprising the Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Foreign Affairs and Home Ministry is working in a coordinated way over the issue, she said.
The Bangladesh government filed a petition before the Canadian Federal Court of Justice for providing information about how fugitive convicted killer Noor Chowdhury is living in Canada, the Prime Minister mentioned in the House.
Diplomatic and legal measures have been taken to bring another fugitive convict, Rashed Chowdhury, back from the USA, she said, adding that lawyers have been appointed there for taking the legal measures.
Besides, the taskforce is working to bring other fugitive convicts back home and red alert has been issued through the Interpol to arrest them, the PM added.
