On February 28, 2013, Delwar Hossain Sayeedi was awarded death penalty (by hanging till death) by the International Crimes Tribunal-1 for committing war crimes during the liberation war of 1971. In protest of this judgment, supporters of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami observed ‘hartal’ (general strike) at Dotterhaat of Sadar upazila and Rajganj of Begumganj upazila of Noakhali. The police opened fire during the ‘hartal’ when a fish trader Shahid Ullah alias Liton (33) and a shop keeper namely Nuruddin (17) were killed at Begumganj. At Dotterhaat, a helper of a pick-up van namely Khokon (16) was killed due to police firing. Their families alleged that they were shot dead, despite having no affiliation with any political parties.
