The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) sent former acting Director General (DG) of National Security Intelligence (NSI) Oahidul Haque to jail in a case filed for crimes against humanity during the Liberation War.

A two-member bench of ICT led by Justice Amir Hossain passed the order when police produced him before the tribunal on Wednesday.

The tribunal also fixed May 10 for submitting a progressive report.

Earlier around 11:30 am, police produced Oahidul before the tribunal.

On Tuesday, Gulshan Police picked up Oahidul Haque from his Baridhara residence around 1:30 pm in compliance with a warrant issued by the ICT on Monday for his arrest.

Prosecutor Turin Afroz said the ICT issued the warrant for the arrest of Oahidul, also former Additional Inspector General of Police, as it found him guilty of carrying out mass killing in Rangpur Cantonment during the Liberation War.

Oahidul was the then army personnel of Pakistan and involved in crimes against humanity while performing duties during the Liberation War. The war crimes allegations were brought against him in 2016.
