India hunts for former Bangladesh leader’s assassins, but not for Netaji & Shastri’sNovember 21, 2011
Jan 21, 2011: India pledges “all possible cooperation” in catching the suspects of former Bangladesh leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s assassins, but what about the suspects of the mysterious death of Netaji Subhash Bose and Lal Bahadur Shastri.
Did Indian Government take a single step towards catching the suspected Indian cook Jan Mohammed for the death of Shastri, where is he since Jan 1966? Did Indian Government try to find the reason of mysterious death of Dr. Chugh and his whole family?
India has asked Bangladesh for information to help hunt down two suspects in the 1975 massacre of Bangladesh’s independence leader and 16 of his relatives and aides during a military coup. Bangladesh last year executed five former army officers for assassinating Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, but several suspects convicted in absentia are still at large. Two are rumored to be in India.
It is being said that Indian cook Jan Mohammed has been migrated in Pakistan.
Sheikh Mujib’s body after the assassinationOn August 15, 1975, a group of junior army officers invaded the presidential residence with tanks and killed Mujib, his family and personal staff. Only his daughters Sheikh Hasina Wajed and Sheikh Rehana, who were visiting West Germany, escaped.
They were banned from returning to Bangladesh. The coup was planned by disgruntled Awami League colleagues and military officers, which included Mujib’s colleague and former confidanté Khondaker Mostaq Ahmad, who became his immediate successor.
There was intense speculation in the media accusing the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency of having instigated the plot. Lawrence Lifschultz has alleged that the CIA was involved in the coup and assassination, basing his assumption on the then US ambassador in Dhaka Eugene Booster.
