Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that all the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be brought back to the country. "We will bring back all the killers of Bangabandhu wherever they are," he said. "Every effort will be made to bring them wherever they are."

The Home Minister said this in a video message on Tuesday. ‘At the time, the arrest of Captain (ob) Abdul Majed, the accused in the Bangabandhu murder case, is the best gift of Mujib's year for the countrymen.’

In the video message, he said, "Captain Abdul Majed, one of the Bangabandhu killers for whom we have been waiting for long has been arrested by our police." He was handed over to the court some time ago. He has been instructed by the court to remain in jail and is being sent to that place.”

The home minister said the three accused - Captain Abdul Majed, Noor and Risaldar Muslehuddin - were there during the August 15 assassination of Bangabandhu on Dhanmondi 32. There were a few more. The murderer did not just participate in the murder of Bangabandhu. We know that he also participated in the historic jail murder. After the murder, he worked at Bangabhaban and elsewhere as per the orders of Ziaur Rahman.

The Home Minister said, "Hopefully, we will be able to execute his sentence as directed by the court. One of the best gifts we have been able to give to the countrymen. He thanked those who were involved in the arrest of Majed.

Regarding the move of the then Ziaur Rahman's government, Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said that the then Ziaur Rahman government rewarded the murderers of Bangabandhu in different ways and made sure that the Indemnity Bill which did not allow them to be tried.

The Home Minister said, "We have seen this murderer - he was working in various embassies in the country and abroad, with the blessing of that (BNP) government." Then when the Awami League government came to power in 1997, he hid himself.
