Part of the Studies in International Security book series


On the late afternoon of 25 March the political confusion was ended abruptly when the President suddenly flew home to West Pakistan. His departure was not anticipated among political leaders in Dacca; nor was any public announcement made beforehand. That morning Sheikh Mujib denounced the ‘reign of terror’ at Chittagong and Rangpur, where a 24-hour curfew had been imposed after shooting incidents the previous evening.39 On the afternoon of the 25th more barricades were set up by rioters in Dacca, between the cantonment and the centre of the town.
