Dhaka: A former Bangladeshi minister from Jatiya Party was indicted by a special court here on Sunday on 16 war crime charges, including genocide, committed during the country's 1971 liberation war. 

Syed Mohammad Qaisar, 73, formed a group named "Qaisar Bahini" with 500 to 700 men, who committed crimes against humanity in Habiganj and Brahmanbaria during the war. 

He was also a commander of the Razakars (an auxiliary group of the then Pakistani army) in the districts, prosecution was quoted as saying by The Daily Star. 

Qaisar, a former Muslim League leader and the state minister for Agriculture during the dictatorship of H M Ershad, was arrested in May last year. 

The three-member International Crimes Tribunal-2, headed by Justice Obaidul Hassan, fixed March 4 for the opening statement of the prosecution. 

Qaisar pleaded not guilty after the court read out the charges against him.
