Although the agreement required the repatriation of Urdu-speaking Biharis to Bangladesh, the Pakistani Government withdrew its promise to establish the Community in Pakistan.  This is where the stranded stateless Pakistani community in Bangladesh was born. Geoffrey Robertson QC, who presided over the UN War Crimes Court in Sierra Leon, had rightly set the context for the tripartite agreement in 2015 in a report entitled “REPORT ON THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT OF BANGLADESH”, when he said that the Holocaust had happened in Bangladesh before the world had the will to intervene in distant countries whose great powers knew little. The Tripartite Agreement of 9 April 1974 was signed between Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Who signed the document on behalf of Pakistan? The 195 Pakistani soldiers against whom Bangladesh had gathered concrete evidence of genocide can still be charged before the International Criminal Court in The Hague, regardless of what was mentioned in the 1974 Delhi Agreement, which Pakistan claims acquitted these criminals of prosecution. The 195 officers of the Pakistani army are morally and legally responsible for the 1971 genocide and Bangladesh has the moral and legal right to bring them to justice.

The deal has been criticized because Pakistan failed to bring Urdu spokesmen back to Bangladesh and did not hold accountable 195 senior military officials accused of violating behavior during the war.  Among the prisoners of war, 195 Pakistani military officers detained in India have been identified as the main war crimes suspects. Pakistan insisted that they be released as one of its main demands.
It urged several Muslim countries to hold back bangladesh`s recognition until the 195 officers were released.  India supported his repatriation to Pakistan. In the text of the agreement, Kamal Hossain, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bangladesh, said: A. Dirk Moïse, war crimes/genocide for Pakistani soldiers in Bangladesh, 1971-1974, The United Nations, Humanitarianism and Human Rights, 2010. including genocide, rape and looting. The Delhi Tripartite Treaty would not prohibit this in any way. K.P.Misra, “Totalitarianism in South-Asia” Asian Survey, VolXiV, No. 7 July 1974. But Bangladesh abactured the deal because Pakistan took 203 Bangladeshi officials hostage for its 195 very high-ranking officers. It also made the repatriation of four Bangladeshis lakh uncertain and put Bangladesh under international pressure. .
