Agriculture minister Begum Matia Chowdhury on Wednesday said Bangabandhu’s fugitive killers would be brought back home for executing the court verdict.
‘All the fugitive convicted killers must be brought back home to execute the death sentence against them,’ said the minister.
The agriculture minister said this while inaugurating a month-long photography exhibition at Shilpakala Academy here on Bangabandhu’s struggling life and the August 21, 2004 grenade attack on Sheikh Hasina.
Matia said Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman made independent the country after a long struggle and movement for 24 years, saying that the anti-liberation forces brutally killed him along with his family to turn the country into Pakistan again.
