Staff Reporter:Law minister Anisul Huq said in Dhaka on Wednesday that Bangladesh would demand that Pakistan should hand over anyone of 195 prisoners of war still alive to Bangladesh for trial on charges of genocide during 1971 Liberation War.

The minister made this remarks at a seminar on Genocide Day organised by Bangladesh Institute of International Strategic Studies.

The government issued a gazette notification in this regard on March 21.
