Questions about the credibility of the confession
On July 4 last year, a teenager went missing after leaving her house in Deobhog area of Narayanganj city. The family members did not find him and first filed a GD and later a case at the police station. Police arrested Abdullah, Rakib and Khalilur Rahman in the case. They testified in court on August 9 last year that they had “confessed” to abducting and raping the girl and then dumping her body in the Shitalakshya river.
However, the girl returned on August 23, 51 days after the incident ‘incredibly’.

Angry Jamuka wants a verification report within 24 hours
The National Freedom Fighters Council (Jamuka) has directed the 112 Upazila Nirbahi Officers of the country to send the verification and selection reports of the heroic freedom fighters within 24 hours. They said three working days had been fixed for checking and sorting the gazette without Jamuka’s recommendation. But so far these reports have not been sent from all the upazilas.
As a result, the government’s plan to publish the final list of heroic freedom fighters by March 26 is not being implemented.
A letter of this instruction has been sent to the divisional commissioners, deputy commissioners and additional deputy commissioners across the country by e-mail on Sunday. The letter said that within 24 hours of receiving the order, the report has been directed to be sent to Jamuka by e-mail in PDF or dock file or hard copy by mail.
The letter sent to UNO from Jamuka said, “Despite instructions to send the heroic freedom fighters without Jamuka’s recommendation to regularize the civilian gazette within three working days of completion of verification and selection, no report has been received from many upazilas so far, which is unfortunate.” Due to non-receipt of the report, on the one hand, the regular gazette regularization activities of the heroic freedom fighters are being delayed, on the other hand, allegations of various irregularities are being raised at the upazila level. This is not desirable at all and there is a problem in publishing the list of heroic freedom fighters on March 26.
Without the recommendation of the National Freedom Fighters Council (Jamuka) Act, from 2002 to 2013, the names of 39,172 people in 491 upazilas were included in the ‘Civilian Gazette’ as heroic freedom fighters. After questioning about their freedom fighter certificate, Jamuka decided to check and select them last year. After that, in January and February, two stages were checked and selected. Of these, 16,793 people from 369 upazilas of the country have been recommended for verification and selection.
Jamuka Director General Zahurul Islam told Prothom Alo that the report should be sent with the information that has been completed at the upazila level by tomorrow afternoon. No excuse will be accepted in this case.
The Jamuka Act was enacted in 2002 to uphold the ideals of the Liberation War and to ensure the welfare of the heroic freedom fighters and their families. The law states, “Jamuka will send a recommendation to the government to prepare a list of genuine freedom fighters, issue certificates and certificates and cancel fake and forged certificates and certificates.”
According to Jamuka’s terms, a heroic freedom fighter trained inside the country must testify against three comrades (trained in India) in order to fight against the Pakistani forces. After December 3, 1971, the people who participated in the liberation war were not taken into consideration (cannot be witnesses) in this case.
At present the number of heroic freedom fighters in the country is 2 lakh 33 thousand. However, due to legal complications, the allowance was 1 lakh 93 thousand. Of these, 1 lakh 80 thousand names have been added to the Management Information System (MIS). Red Muktibarta, ‘Bharatiya List’ and ‘Gazette’ have been considered in their case. There are 33 types of documents to prove yourself as a heroic freedom fighter.
What to do if you do not receive the report within 24 hours? In response to this question, Liberation War Affairs Minister AQM Mozammel Haque told Prothom Alo that action would be taken against those involved.
