Mojaheed, Salauddin family members see then in jail


The family members of death-row war criminals BNP leader Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mojaheed met them at Dhaka Central Jail on Thursday afternoon.
Nine members of Salauddin Quader Chowdhury’s family, out of 15, entered the jail at 12:27 pm and got out of it at 1:30 pm, said sources at the jail gate.The nine members of Salauddin Quader’s family are his wife Farhad Quader, two sons Fazlul Quader Chowdhury and Humman Quader Chowdhury, elder son’s wife Tania Khandaker, daughter Farzin Quader, son-in-law Zafar Khan, cousin Iqbal Hossain and two sisters Zobaida Manwar and Hasina Quader.
No one of them talked to the media after meeting Salauddin Quader in the jail.
Meanwhile, 12 members of Mojaheed’s family, including his wife Tamanna-e-Jahan, son Ali Ahmad Mabrur, daughter-in-law Nafseen Akther Kakoli, daughter Tamanna Binte Mojaheed, nephew ANM Fazlul Hadi, entered the jail at 1:53 pm and got out of it at 2:40 pm.
Coming out of the jail, Mojaheed’s son Ali Ahmad Mabrur said, “ My father is fine and he heard that his review petition has been rejected but the order has not yet reached the jail. “
“I’m innocent, if I’m hanged then it’ll be a cool-headed murder,” he said quoting his father.
About seeking presidential clemency, Mabrur said his father will decide about it after discussions with his lawyers.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Supreme Court upheld its previous verdicts on Salauddin Quader and Mojaheed, rejecting their pleas for reviewing the death sentences handed down to them for their crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971, keeping no further legal bar to their execution.- UNB
