Verdict on two Kishoreganj ‘war criminals’ on Wednesday
The verdict on two war crimes accused Syed Md Hossain and Md Moslem Pradhan from Kishoreganj will be announced on Wednesday.
The two men face six charges of abduction, torture, murder, looting and arson committed during the Liberation War of Bangladesh, reports bdnews24.com.
The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) -1 concluded the trial on Mar 7 after hearing the arguments and kept its verdict pending.
The special tribunal’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, kidnapping and detaining 11, and ransacking and burning more than 250 houses during the 1971 war.
