Two live handmade crude bombs were recovered from the road beside the International Crimes Tribunal in the High Court area of the capital on Tuesday morning as the nationwide strike called by the BNP-led 18-Party Alliance was in place.
Shahbagh Police Station Inspector Abdul Jalil confirmed bdnews24.com the recovery of the 'two red-taped bombs'.
“Pedestrians informed the police about the bombs after they spotted it in a drain beside the road between the east and west entrances of the tribunal.”
Police defused them, he said. No one has been detained so far over the incident.
Trials for crimes committed against humanity during the country's Liberaion War of 1971 are being conducted at the ICT. Three Jamaat leaders have already been convicted – two sentenced to death and one given life imprisonment. Five other Jamaat, BNP leaders are also facing trials.
Jamaat-e-Islami have been waging violence for abolition of the ICT. Their key alliance partner BNP says that the trials should be carried out in a transparent way and following international standards.
