The Interpol 'most wanted' list has carried Tarique's picture with details, saying Bangladesh is seeking him to stand trial in the 2004 case.

The High Court has also forbidden Bangladesh media and citizens from reporting statements by Tarique Rahman in all forms of media and social media like Facebook and Twitter.
