Prime Minister’s International Affairs Adviser Dr Gowher Rizvi has said there had been at least seven plots and a long conspiracy behind the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family on 15 August 1975.
“By killing him (Bangabandhu), the conspirators had aimed to take back Bangladesh to its pre-independence state. There’s sufficient evidence of these plots. Those will be released in due course,” he said.
Dr Rizvi made the remarks while addressing a commemorative event marking the 46th martyrdom anniversary of Bangabandhu and the National Mourning Day as the chief guest.
