Hasina requests extradition of Bangabandhu killers from US
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has requested the US to extradite the killers of her father and founder of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Hasina made the request to US Secretary of State John Kerry when he called on her at her office.

In response to Hasina’s request, Kerry said the US was considering the request. “I understand your sensitivity, the issue is under review,” Kerry said yesterday. Currently, the Bangladesh government is pursuing diplomatic and legal efforts to bring back six death-row fugitive killers of Bangabandhu, Dhaka Tribune reported.
