20 – Genocide ’71-20 – eb6b80a0-0010-4b3d-bac2-3a10504bfa33

The photograph is of a recent grave in the local graveyard, in a place that is suspected to be the old mass grave. 300 Biharis lived in Deara village and was a prominent spot for anti-Bengali collaborators. A Rajakar camp was established here in August 1971 with Shawkat as the commander. Around the end of August, the Rajakars and the Biharis, commanded by Shawkat, perpetrated vicious attacks against the people of the village. Houses were looted, people killed and the village was set on fire. After the killings, the surviving locals buried the bodies scattered around the place in a mass grave.
