AKM Mohiuddin Ahmed, condemned to death for killing the founding father of Bangladesh Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family about 32 years ago, might finally be brought back to the country today.
His prolonged legal battle in the US to avoid being expelled ended in failure on Thursday as a district court in Los Angeles ruling that it didn't have jurisdiction over immigration judge's order for his deportation. Immigration and foreign ministry officials said ex-army Major Mohiuddin, 60, boarded a plane from Los Angeles yesterday noon and was scheduled to arrive at the Zia International Airport (ZIA) on a Thai Airways flight at around 12:30pm.
US judge had termed Muhiuddin as a terrorist and a danger for USA.
Foreign Adviser Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury told reporters at a briefing on Sunday said that they had received a communication from their Consul General in Washington that the process of his deportation had begun .
He however did not elaborate on the much-talked about return, citing security concerns of the US authorities. Two US Homeland Security officials escorting Mohiuddin will hand Mohiuddin over to the airport police on arrival at ZIA on Monday.
