India has assured all possible help to Bangladesh's request to track down the killers of its 'Father of the Nation' Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The plea was made by the country's Home Secretary during his meeting with Indian counterpart R K Singh in Dhaka.
Risaldar Mosleuddin and Capt Majed, allegedly involved in the killing of Shiekh Mujibur on the intervening night of August 14-15, 1975, at his Dhanmondi residence, are suspected to hiding in India. Mosleuddin was believed to have fired on Mujibur as he was climbing down the stairs from the first floor of his house.
"Bangladesh Home Secretary Mustaq Ahmed once again urged for immediate tracking, arrest, and hand over of the killers of their Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. We have assured all possible assistance,"said a joint statement issued by MHA. Both sides agreed to cooperate and apprehend wanted criminals and fugitives. The countries also agreed to take immediate steps to repatriate released prisoners and victims of human trafficking.
Bangladesh also agreed to train their security personnel at Indian institutes including Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Police Academy at Hyderabad. Though New Delhi asked Dhaka to hand over top ULFA leader Anup Chetia during the two-day meet, there was no mention of it in the joint statement.
