The government is actively considering forming a commission to identify the conspirators behind the killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told Parliament on Wednesday "Formation of a commission to identify other masterminds of the assassination of the Father of the Nation is now under active consideration of the government," she said replying to a starred question from Awami League MP Mohd Abdullah (Laxmipur-4).
She said many information regarding the conspiracy behind the killing of the Father of the Nation were revealed during the two consecutive terms of the Awami League government. Indirect involvement of some people and organisations at home and abroad were found in the conspiracy.
Sheikh Hasina said efforts are on to bring the killers of the Father of Nation, who are now hiding abroad and home. 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. A petition has been placed before the Canadian Federal Court of Justice for providing information about how fugitive convicted killer Noor Chowdhury is living in Canada, the Prime Minister added.
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, Hasina added.
