Verdict against Md Mahbubur Rahman, who was charged with crimes against humanity during Liberation War for killing seven people including Ranada Prasad and his son, will be pronounced tomorrow Thursday. The accused is currently in jail.  

On Wednesday, The three-member International Crimes Tribunal led by Justice Shahinur Islam fixed the day for the verdict.

Prosecutor Rana Das Gupta was in favor of the prosecution. On the other hand, Lawyer Gazi MH Tamim was present for the defendant.  

On March 28, 2018, The Tribunal ordered to begin the trial by forming charges against Md Mahbubur Rahman for crimes against humanity. On February 11, 2018, the Tribunal took cognizance against the accused. 

Md Mahbubur Rahman — an accused in the murder of Ranada Prasad — was charged with three charges of murder, kidnapping, and genocide.

On November 2, 2018, the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) investigation agency published the war crimes investigation report on Mahbubur Rahman.

Accused Mahbubur Rahman’s father Abdul Wadud was the President of Mirzapur Peace Committee. Mahbubur Rahman and his brother Abdul Mannan were then in the Razakar force. He competed in the Union Parishad elections independently for three times but was defeated each time. 

Ranada Prasad Saha’s ancestral home was in Mirzapur of Tangail. There he established several educational and charitable institutions. Once Ranada Prasad Saha had done jute business in Narayanganj. He lived in Khanpur’s Sirajdikhan of Narayanganj. Mahbubur Rahman and his associates took away him, his son and others from the house.
