Trial of BDR mutiny accused starts

A total of 850 suspects appeared on the dock under tight security as metropolitan sessions judge Mohammad Zohurul Haque started the hearing at a makeshift court complex at Bakshi Bazar area in old Dhaka when the prosecution lawyers read out the charges against the accused on Tuesday.

Chief prosecutor Mosharraf Hossain Kajol told the court that mutineer soldiers of the then BDR, now renamed as Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB), had taken a secret oath to kill army officers in the frontier force at their Pilkhana headquarters in the capital on February 25-26, 2009.

He said the protracted investigations into the country’s “biggest ever criminal case” in terms of number of accused unfolded the tales of conspiracy, murders, loots, arsons and other heinous offences in the past year.
