Pak denies hand in Bangladesh mutiny

Written by: Staff

Islamabad, Mar 3: Pakistan has refuted reports about its alleged involvement in the last week's mutiny in Bangladesh in which over 77 Bangladeshi army officers were murdered by the Bangladesh rifles personnel (BDR).

Talking to reporters here, Pak Foreign Office spokesperson, Abdul Basit termed the allegations about Pakistan's involvement in the incident as 'baseless'.

"These reports are obviously baseless and malafide," The Daily Times quoted Basit, as saying.

Basit said Pakistan and Bangladesh shared a close and co-operative relationship.

"Pakistan believed in the principles of non-intervention and non-interference," he added.

Earlier, reports in the media had claimed that the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Pakistan's army along with a separatist group of the BDR carried out the carnage in which over 77 BDR personnel were killed including the chief of the Bangladesh rifles, Major General Shakil Ahmed.
