DHAKA, Aug 11, 2014 (BSS) - Canadian High Commissioner in Dhaka Heather Cruden today called the August 15, 1975 assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members "a terrible crime" and described the carnage to be an issue of "powerful emotion and memory". 
 "It (the carnage), was terrible, terrible crime," she told in an interaction with the members of diplomatic correspondents association of Bangladesh (DCAB) at the Jatiya press Club. 
 Cruden also paid her tributes to the country's founder saying she visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhanmondhi where he was gunned down along with most of his family members and added "I cannot imagine what the family has gone through" during that time. 
 The Canadian envoy's remarks came as asked for comments on the repatriation of one of the fugitive convicted killers of Bangabandhu, sacked lieutenant colonel Noor Chowdhury, who took refuge in Canada to evade justice. 
 Chowdhury was one of the two men to directly shot Bangabandhu dead at 32 Dhanmandi.
 Cruden, however, declined to speak on Chowdhury's status saying privacy laws of her country barred her from talking about the issue but she understood Bangladesh's interest in repatriating him to be exposed to justice.
