Bangladesh: Mysterious disappearance of the Declaration of Independence.

National authorities in Bangladesh have made a statement in which they indicated the loss in mysterious circumstances of the declaration of independence, which was drafted during the war against Pakistan in 1971 by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman (1920 - 1975), founding father of Bangladesh according to BBC News
The disappearance of this historic declaration was announced in April 2008 when the authorities moved a mass of documents in the archives of the state.
The problem is that these records have only received copies of these documents.
Before 1947, the territory of present-day Bangladesh belonged to India, herself a British colony.
When India declared its independence as a state divided into two sub-states, Bangladesh became the eastern part of Pakistan with which it shares Islam.
On March 26, 1971, Bangladesh declared its independence.
Hence begins the civil war against the Pakistani occupation.
The intervention of India can win the separatists. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was released December 22, 1971 and became Prime Minister of Bangladesh.
His party, the Awami League won a landslide victory in early elections on March 7, 1973.
Populated by 64.4 million inhabitants (2009), with capital Dhaka, the People's Republic of Bangladesh covers 147,570 km2. It is directed by Zillul Rahman as Chairman and as Prime Minister Sheik Hasina Ms, daughter of Sheik Mujibur Rahman.
