Dhaka University Vice-Chancellor AAMS Arefin Siddique was also present.Pakistan summoned the Acting High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Islamabad on Monday, a week after Dhaka protested its “brazen interference” in the war crimes trials.Pakistani politicians previously reacted to the tribunal’s verdicts. The latest official reaction came after the execution of Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid.
