Extradite Noor Chowdhury, PM asks Canada
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked the Canadian government to extradite Noor Chowdhury, one of the self- proclaimed killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

"One of the convicted killers of Bangabandhu is now residing in your country, extradite him," she told outgoing Canadian High Commissioner Benoit-Pierre Laramee met her at her office, reports UNB.

PM's press secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

He said the Canadian High Commissioner in reply said he will convey this to his government. "I shall convey your concern to the authorities."

During the meeting, Laramee said his country wants to see an inclusive election in Bangladesh. "You need to have stability as Bangladesh is heading towards becoming a middle-income country in the next two years," he said.

The Prime Minister said the Awami League government coming to power in 1996 restored the rights of people which were absent after Bangabandhu’s assassination in 1975.

She mentioned that Awami League government introduced the transparent ballot box for election. Before the 10th general election, Hasina said, she proposed formation of an election time coalition government. "But BNP didn’t respond to that proposal."

She said her government is working hard for the welfare of the country’s 160 million people.

Principal Secretary Dr Kamal Abdul Naser was present during the meeting.
