Did Pakistan really kill 3 million people in Bangladesh? If they did, why did nothing really happen to them as a consequence?

Update:

Walter, why do you claim only a small number of people perished?

    That is an exaggeration. Independent researchers put the figure at 300,000 to 500,000.

    One of the leaders stood trial back in 2012, so something has been done about it.

    Since this happened nearly half a century ago, it should be in the history section, not current events.

    No they didn't which would be why nothing happened about it. Far more people have been killed in cyclones than in the Liberation War.

    When?  There was a war between West Pakistan and East Pakistan in the 1960's which led to East Pakistan becoming Bangladesh. Only a small number of soldiers and civilians were killed during that conflict, an estimated 1.5 million on the Bangladeshi side, unlike the separation of India and Pakistan.
