BDR staged mutiny today at their headquarter at Pilkhana in Dhaka. The revolt started in the morning when the high officials from BDR met in a meeting in the Darbar Hall and altercation resulted in shoot out and death and injuries to the uniformed personals.Many civilians were also caught in the crossfire.
It is understood that the mutiny is the outburst of the long standing frustration and discrimination of the BDR personnel from their commanders who are deputed from Army.
The government is caught off handed but is trying to pacify the situation, Home Ministers and Prime Minister herself are engaged in the negotiation and it is hoped that a settlement will come soon.
BDR demanded withdrawal of Army from the surrounding of Pilkhana and they are also not ready to surrender their arms to the army and want removal of all army officers from BDR. They also demanded general amnesty from the PM for this mutiny.
Is it a revolt against the privileged? Will it end here?
