Former State Minister for Home, Lutfozzaman Babar, is among the 19 people who have been sentenced to death.
Tarique Rahman, the fugitive son of former Bangladesh Prime Minister Khaleda Zia, was sentenced to life and 19 others were given death sentence by a court on Wednesday over the 2004 grenade attack that killed 24 people and injured 500 others, including Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Hasina narrowly escaped, having been whisked away by party members to a waiting vehicle from a dais in front of the headquarters of her Awami League party near where several grenades exploded.
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said Khaleda can not duck responsibilities for the attack as she was in-charge of the home ministry at the time.
"They shall be hanged by their neck", said Justice Shahed Nuruddin of the special tribunal, who also awarded life imprisonment to Tarique Rahman, exiled son of former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia.
