Big fishes were involved in Bangabandhu murder plotting: Chief Justice


PV Desk : Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha today said many big fishes were involved in the conspiracy behind the killings of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members on August 15 in 1975.

“We have clearly stated in our verdict that it was a criminal conspiracy and pre-planned plotting in which Bangabandhu and most of his family members were murdered,” he said while addressing the blood donation programme organised by Supreme Court marking the National Mourning Day.

The chief justice said the goal of the conspirators was to eliminate the entire family of Bangabandhu, but faults in probe failed to bring the big plotters of the barbaric killings to justice.

He said the killings were also part of a planned conspiracy against the whole country, which eventually became evident in the indemnity ordinance issued only in one and a half month of the killings.
