ⓘ Mohiuddin Ahmed

Ahmed was in the 2nd Field Artillery under the command of Major Khandaker Abdur Rashid. Rashid criticised the policies of President Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The day before the coup, he directed the officers under his command to prepare for the coup including ordering them to carry personal firearms. Syed Faruque Rahman the leader of the coup wanted to overthrow the government of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and replace it with an Islamic government led by Khandaker Moshtaque Ahmed. Ahmed ordered the firing of artillery towards the house of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. After Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was killed, he was member of the newlys formed command council to lead the country from Bangabhaban. Ahmed would later implicate Ziaur Rahman in the coup through a confessional statement. After the assassination, he was given diplomatic posts along with other assassins. He served in the Bangladesh embassy in Riyadh and Bangkok.

The trial for the assassination of Sheikh Mujib began in 1996 after his daughter Sheikh Hasina was voted into power. On 8 November 1998 he was sentenced to death along with 15 other accused in the case by trial court. On 14 December 2000, Bangladesh High Court confirmed the death sentence for him and 11 other accused. On 17 June 2007, Ahmed was deported from the United States to Bangladesh after a court rejected his appeal for residency in the United States.
