Seven months after his disappearance, Hummam Quader Chowdhury, son of war crimes convict Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, have returned home.
“Some people dropped him in Dhanmondi area around 2:30am on Friday. He managed to come home from there,” Hummam’s uncle Giasuddin Quader Chowdhury told bdnews24.com.
“He is taking rest. I could not talk to him yet about who took him away and where he was kept,” Giasuddin added. Giasuddin is a vice-chairman of the BNP.
Salaudin, a standing committee member of the BNP, was convicted by the war crimes tribunal and hanged in November 2015 after his clemency petition was rejected by the President. The tribunal had passed the death penalty on Oct 2013.
His family members and lawyers distributed 'leaked copies' of the verdict even before the judgement was passed by the tribunal.
Saka’s wife Farhat Quader Chowdhury, son Hummam and lawyer Fakrul Imam were put on trial under the ICT Act for their connivance in leaking court verdict.
Hummam disappeared on Aug 4, the day the verdict of the case under ICT was delivered. His family had alleged at that time that a group of people identifying themselves as DB police picked him from court premises in old Dhaka.
Police denied all through that Hummam was in their custody.
Humman and his mother were acquitted in the case, but their lawyer and four others were sentenced to different prison terms.
The High Court, however, issued a rule asking why their acquittal should not be quashed and they should not be punished like other accused in the case.
