Law Minister Anisul Haque on Tuesday said that the formalities for the death sentence to Captain (sacked) Abdul Majed, killer of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has begun. 

“The death sentence will be enforced after formalities,” he said in a video message sent to the media in the afternoon.

Anisul Haque said Abdul Majed will be in solitary confinement like other convicted accused. In this, there will be no risk of spreading coronavirus infection, he added.  

Earlier on Monday night, Abdul Majed was arrested from the Mirpur area in the capital by members of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit. 

Meanwhile, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal described Abdul Majed’s arrest as the best gift for the countrymen in the Mujib Borsho. The minister thanked all those who were involved with the intelligence agencies to arrest him.
