The investigation agency of the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) today finalized its report against two alleged war criminals, including Md Madhu Miah Talukder of Baniachang upazila in Habiganj.

Madhu, 66, the incumbent chairman of Muradpur union parishad under Baniachang police station, used to head a group of Razakars in 1971, chief coordinator of probe body Muhammad Abdul Hannan Khan said.

“We launched the probe against the duo on April 26, 2018, and concluded today. We have brought five allegations including genocide, murder and abduction against them. Madhu is now in jail after getting arrested on May 23, 2018,” Khan told newsmen at a press briefing held at its Dhanmandi office this morning.

However, the investigation officials refrained themselves from revealing the identity of the accused as he is yet to be arrested.

“Madhu and his family members were the supporters of Muslim League. After the start of the War of Liberation, Madhu formed a group of Razakars and named it after him. After the independence, he went into hiding and later on he returned his village in 1976 and later joined BNP. Now, he is the president of Muradpur union unit of BNP,” probe body senior coordinator Sanaul Haque said.
