AbstractThe accused appellant was one of the organizers of Al-Badar force at Chittagong, which was raised with the aim and object of killing the pro-liberation forces and minority community- the force is known as ‘killing squad’. The accused not only organized the force at Chittagong, he had commanded the force and directly participated in the perpetration of most barbarous acts unknown to human civilization. He does not deserve any leniency on the question of sentence on consideration of the nature and gravity of offence. The tribunal awarded the sentence of death in respect of charge No.11 which according to us was ‘proportionate to the gravity of the crime.’
The Appeal is allowed in part. Accused Mir Quashem Ali is found not guilty in respect of charge Nos. 4 and 12 and he is acquitted of those charges. His conviction and sentence in respect of charge Nos. 2, 3, 7, 9, 10 and 11 is maintained.
