    Background: The Biharis who came from India to the then East Pakistan have now become the problem community for the Bangladesh government. The West Pak military junta helped then in keeping aloof from the bangalis during the peace time in hope to use them against each other and they did use them during the present war. Active Biharis were picked up by West Pak army and were turned into Razakars who were directed to loot, kill an rape bangalis. According to local people these Biharis were looting and killing and also helping Pak army to do so during the liberation struggle of Bangladesh. Now since the things have changed and Mukti Bahini has won Biharis are scared to come out in the Dacca town and are living in various Bihari colony camps in the city and are dying for food because now Mukti Bahili is at large with arms. Food and medicine is being sent to these camps either through the Indian army or the red cross.
