Family members of war criminal Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid have met him in the Dhaka Central Jail.

The convicted Jamaat-e-Islami leader faces imminent execution after the top court rejected his review petition to commute the death sentence on Wednesday.
 
His son Ali Ahmmed Mabrur filed the application seeking permission to meet him on Thursday noon.
 
The family had also met Mujahid last week.
 
Twelve family members entered the jail at 1:50pm and came out around 2:45pm.
 
Former Al-Badr commander Mujahid was sentenced to death on July 17, 2013 for the murder of intellectuals and killing and torture of Hindus in 1971.
 
The top court upheld the tribunal’s verdict on June 16.
 
Mujahid can now seek mercy from the president. Once the matter is resolved, the government will go ahead with the execution.
