A new prosecution witness (PW) in the trial of Engineer Abdul Jabbar on Wednesday submitted her deposition, narrating how Razakars following the order of the accused abducted and murdered her family members in 1971.
Bokuli Rani Halder, 62, inhabitants of village Mothbaria in Pirojpur, testified against the former Jatiya Party MP as the PW-15.
"Following the order of Jabbar, a group of Razakars raided our house in the midnight of October 6, 1971. They looted the house and nabbed my father-in-law Modhusudan Halder and brother-in-law Prionath Halder and started beating them mercilessly. As my father-in-law asked them why they were being captured, they replied that their leader Jabbar has asked them to do so," said Bokuli. ?BSS
