Bangladesh detains five army officers

 
An official confirmed the dismissal or forced retirement of “some army officers recently” while ‘The Daily Star’ newspaper, quoting unidentified intelligence sources, said the detained five junior officers named six of their former superiors as masterminds behind the attack on Taposh.

The report said one of the six officers, Lt Colonel Saiful Islam Joarder, was on the run as he was believed to have provided funds for the attack on Taposh, also a key lawyer in the final appeal hearing of Bangladesh founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s murder trial at the apex Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.

‘The Star’ report named the six officers who ranked between Brigadier and Major while several local newspapers on Monday carried reports of the alleged links of several army officers in the attack on Taposh, who narrowly escaped the hit which injured 15 others.
