BNP for re-trying BDR mutiny cases

February 25, 2014

The Bangladesh Nationalist Party acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday urged the government for retrying the BDR mutiny cases as what he said the trials were not held in ‘appropriate ways’. ‘The trial was done hurriedly, dropping the real masterminds…the investigation was incompetent,’ he said adding BNP urges for an independent trial through proper investigation.
The BNP spokesperson came up with the remarks after placing floral wreaths at Ziaur Rahman’s grave Tuesday noon with BNP vice-chairman and Dhaka city unit convener Sadeque Hossain Khoka, who was recently freed from jail.
A sessions court in Dhaka on Nov 5, sentenced to death 152 former riflemen and their officers for killing 74 people, including 57 army officers, and committing other criminal offences during a bloody rebellion in the border force’s Peelkhana headquarters in February 25-26, 2009.
Meanwhile, the BNP spokesperson at a press briefing this afternoon at the party’s central office at Naya Paltan in the city alleged that the grievances of BDR mutiny (Feb 25) was undermined by the colorful inauguration of the Asia Cup tournaments.
