Dhaka mutiny: Trial of killers to be fast-tracked

Written by: Staff

Dhaka, Feb 28: The trail of those who killed scores of army officers in the two-day BDR mutiny will be fast-tracked, opined a senior army officer in Bangladesh on Saturday, Feb 28. The statement came a day after a mass grave of army officers were discovered in the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) complex.

In this regard Bangladesh govt will constitute special tribunals for quick and ' exemplary punishment of the culprits' involved in the gruesome killings of army officers during the rebellion by BDR troops.

The general amnesty that was announced by Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina does not mean that those who took part in killing and mutiny will be pardoned, said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Principal Staff Officer (PSO) Lt Gen Mohammad Abdul Mubin in a statement.

Mubin promised fast track trial of 'culprits' involved in the killings of army officers during the rebellion. Those who died in that two-day mutiny would be buried with full state honours.
