They took the sentence nonchalantly, appearing relaxed and unperturbed, and were even seen laughing and joking among themselves.
Salauddin's sister Hasina Jabil Sinha, accompanied by Salauddin's nieces, gave her reaction to journalists standing on the court premises after the verdict.
While Hasina spoke, Salauddin's family members standing nearby were seen talking among themselves and even laughing.
Salauddin's son and one of his brothers were also talking to journalists at the time.
The New Age journalist David Bergman was passing by Hasina at that time.
Hasina walked up to Bergman to exchange greetings and the two spoke for a few minutes.
Bergman in his reports and social media postings has questioned the standards of the war crimes tribunals. Proponents of the tribunal have alleged that the New Age reporter maintains ties to those on trial for crimes against humanity during 1971.
