Diplomat wanted for killing ex-Bangladesh PM to stay in Malaysia Print E-mail

A former Bangladesh high commissioner to Malaysia, who is wanted for the killings of four top political leaders in Dhaka in 1975, is going to settle down here and will not return home in compliance of a Bangladesh government order.

A former army major, M. Khairuzzaman has been implicated in the killing of Bangladesh's first prime minister Tajuddin Ahmed, then vice president Nazrul Islam and two ministers who were jailed after the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the then president and the country's founding father.

Khairuzzaman was one of the officers who had staged a military coup in August 1975 and is alleged to have eliminated the four in Dhaka jail in November that year.

Like many other coup leaders, Khairuzzaman had switched to the diplomatic service and was posted abroad for several years.

The Daily Star Thursday said Khairuzzaman has applied for a home in Kuala Lumpur under the country's Malaysia My Second Home scheme, fulfilling the criteria to stay a long time over there.

'He (Khairuzzaman) will not go back to Bangladesh at least during the tenure of the Awami League government,' a Bangladeshi, who has been living in Malaysia for 15 years and maintains a close relation with him, told The Daily Star.

Khairuzzaman was ordered to return home five months ago, but did not comply. He sought medical leave in July after which his diplomatic passport was cancelled.

Newly-appointed Bangladesh High Commissioner to Malaysia A.K.M. Atiqur Rahman told The Daily Star last week: 'As far as I know, he is in Kuala Lumpur.'

The Sheikh Hasina government last week moved to resume the trial of several former army officers involved in the 1975 killings.
