AL leader held over war crimes charges in Habiganj
Police have arrested Awami League leader and former Gojnaipur union parishad chairman Abul Khair Golap in a case for crimes against humanity committed during the Liberation War of 1971. The accused was arrested on Tuesday afternoon in Habiganj.  He is the president of Gojnaipur union unit Awami League. A police source said: “Following a secret lead, Abul Khair Golap was taken to Nabiganj police station by Officer-in-Charge (investigation) Iqbal Hossain on Monday evening. Abul was interrogated at the police superintendent's office that night and was shown arrested on Tuesday.” Habiganj Superindent of Police Joydev Kumar Bhadra admitted they had kept Abul overnight for interrogation. Joydev said Abdul was arrested on the basis of arrest warrant issued against him by the International  Crimes Tribunal (ICT). On March 13,  2016, a complaint was lodged with the ICT against Abul Khair Golap for his involvement as an organiser of axillary groups of Pakistani occupation forces during the Liberation War on 1971. The complaint was lodged by Shukuri Bibi from Atanagari village of Nabiganj upazila in Habiganj. The complaint stated that on November 12, 1971, Abul led a team of Pakistani army who raped and tortured the plaintiff. The plaintiff also alleged that Abul was responsible for rape and torture of many women in Nabiganj during the Liberation War. The plaintiff said she had been silent for years in fear as the accused is a politically influential person of the locality. On October 25,  the ICT formed a probe against Abul Khair Golap in response to the complaint.
