Protests by expatriate Bangladeshis in US have forced Rashed Chowdhury, one of the fugitive killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, to leave a social gathering in California.
Chowdhury, who has been staying in the US for several years now, went to a local library in Sacramento on Saturday morning (Bangladesh time) where children from the Bangladeshi community were rehearsing for a cultural programme to celebrate the Bengali New Year.
Parents of several of the children were there too.
They said California State University teacher Abu Naser Rajib identified Chowdhury and shouted at him.
"Chowdhury cowardly left the venue," a witness said.
Prof Rajib told that he lost his temper seeing Bangabandhu's killer. "I will do it again if I see that killer around," he said.
On Aug 15, 1975, a group of rogue military officers killed then Bangladesh president Sheikh Mujib and most of his family members. The top court sentenced 12 people, including Chowdhury, to death for their role in the assassination. Five of them were hanged in 2011.    ?
