Bangladesh killed a former military captain for joining the 1975 coup in which the country's founder Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was killed.

Abdul Majeed was hanged at Dhaka Central Jail in Karnailganj at 12:01 pm (local time) on Sunday.

President Abdul Hameed on Thursday rejected his mercy petition.

A special police unit arrested Majid as he returned home after hiding in India for nearly two and a half decades.

Majid is one of the six absconding ex-military officers who were sentenced to death after trial in absentia.
