CHITTAGONG: Chittagong BNP has called daylong hartal for Wednesday in Chittagong protesting the verdict that awards death penalty to Salauddin Quader for war crimes.

BNP lawmaker Salauddin Quader Chowdhury was sentenced to death for his involvement in crimes against humanity during liberation war in 1971.

International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 found BNP lawmaker Salauddin Quader Chowdhury guilty of nine charges out of total allegations of war crimes including genocide and killings.

Out of total 23 charges, SQ Chowdhury was, however, acquitted of eight charges while the prosecutions failed to prove six other allegations.
