17 dead in Bangladesh clashes

- February 28, 2013 - Updated 205 PKT - From Web Edition

DHAKA: Seventeen people were killed in clashes Thursday after a Bangladesh war crimes court sentenced a top religious opposition figure to death, police said.


At least 14 of them were shot dead in violence that erupted after a court in Dhaka found Delwar Hossain Sayedee, vice-president of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, guilty of eight crimes related to the 1971 liberation war.


Also among the dead were two policemen who were beaten to death after thousands of Jamaat supporters attacked a base in the northern district of Gaibandha, local police chief Maonjur Rahman told AFP. (AFP)

The current Bengladeshi regime is pro-Indian. One of my Bangladeshi brother told me that current regime has inducted so many Hindu judges in the judiciary. Then what you can expect from current regime and judiciary, only to punish those individuals who were loyal to their country Pakistan at that time. They had not committed any crime by supporting their government. Hamid Chaudhry, Canada
