Fugitive death-row war criminal held

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Nazrul Islam, a death-row convict war criminal who has been on the run, from the capital’s Mohammadpur area on Friday.

RAB spokesman Khandaker Al Moin confirmed the news.

Earlier on May 31, the International Crimes Tribunal handed the death sentence to war criminals Nazrul, Rezaul Karim Montu and Md Shaheed Mondol.

Both Rezaul and Shaheed are in prison.

They three were found guilty of murder, kidnapping, torture, looting and arson during the Liberation War.
