Recognition of guerrillas: SC upholds HC order

 

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld a High Court order that directed the government to recognise 2,367 members of the ‘guerrilla force’ who participated in the 1971 Liberation War as freedom fighters, reports UNB.

 

A four-member bench led by Chief Justice SK Sinha passed the order rejected a petition filed by state.

 

Attorney General Mahabubey Alam represented the state and Advocate Subrata Chowdhury for the freedom fighters.

 

Earlier on September 8, the HC directed the government to recognise 2,367 members of the guerrilla force and also ordered to give them proper status, dignity and facilities of the freedom fighters.
