Korban Ali (25) shot to death and Amena Akhter (13) injured by shooting in Mutubi village of Shonaimuri Upazila under Noakhali district

On February 28, 2013 the International Crimes Tribunal-1 delivered death sentence to Jamaat-e-Islami’s Nayeb-e-Amir Delwar Hossain Sayedee for crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971. Country wide general strike was called to protest against the judgement, where several persons were killed in clashes between the police and protesters in Rajganj of Begumganj Upazila and Dotter haat under Noakhali district. Following the clash on March 1, 2013 at around 1:45pm, Korban Ali, son of Lokman Hossain was shot to death allegedly by RAB-11 officials in front of a mosque in Mutubi village of Shonaimuri Upazila under Noakhali district. When Korban’s nephew and the locals wanted to go close to Korban, after he was shot, RAB fired a few more indiscriminate shots which caused few people injured. Amena, who was standing in her yard, also got shot in the firing. Korban’s father claimed that his son was innocent and was killed without any reason.
