International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has reportedly issued a red alert notice on Bangladesh Nationalist Party senior vice chairman, Tarique Rahman, on charge of ‘murder and explosion of hand grenade in the Awami League meeting on August 21′ in 2004.
Tarique Rahman, the elder son of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, has now been staying in London.
The grenade attack killed twenty-four AL leaders and activists – including Mahila Awami League president Ivy Rahman and 300 others left injured.
BNP denied the allegation and said Awami League pressed the charges on political vengeance.

According to the website INTERPOL Notices are international requests for cooperation or alerts allowing police in member countries to share critical crime-related information.
Notices are published by INTERPOL’s General Secretariat at the request of National Central Bureaus (NCBs) and authorized entities, and can be published in any of the Organization’s official languages: Arabic, English, French and Spanish.
In the case of Red Notices, the persons concerned are wanted by national jurisdictions for prosecution or to serve a sentence based on an arrest warrant or court decision. INTERPOL’s role is to assist the national police forces in identifying and locating these persons with a view to their arrest and extradition or similar lawful action.
nly those notices approved for public dissemination appear on this website (the full list of Notices is available to authorised users via INTERPOL’s Information System).
Any individual who is subject to an INTERPOL Notice should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
Any unauthorized alteration of any portion of any INTERPOL Notice is considered as a violation and subject to legal prosecution.
A Notice is published only if it fulfils all conditions for processing the information. For example, a Notice will not be published if it violates Article 3 of the INTERPOL Constitution, which forbids the Organization from undertaking any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.
Notices are processed in line with INTERPOL’s Rules on the Processing of Data, which ensure the legality and quality of information, and the protection of personal data.
The legal basis for a Red Notice is an arrest warrant or court order issued by the judicial authorities in the country concerned. Many of INTERPOL’s member countries consider a Red Notice to be a valid request for provisional arrest – News Desk
