Questionable role during Sheikh Mujib's murder

Following the murder of Sheikh Mujib and his family on 15 August 1975 by rebellious junior army officials, Bangladesh was once again embroiled in a period of uncertainty where nasty surprises were not too far away.

Shafiullah as the head of the Bangladesh Army.
