THE army is apparently set to enter the BDR headquarters with heavy arms through all gates near Nilkhet and Hazaribagh, flaring up the fear of a heavy bloodshed.
Around 4:15pm, army personnel fired several gunshots on way to the mutineers’ centre of operations.
Some private television stations reported that army already entered the BDR headquarters through gate No 2, triggering a battle as the BDR mutineers retaliated.
Residents of the surrounding areas were evacuated.
Home Minister Sahara Khatun earlier told reporters that BDR jawans agreed to surrender arms and go back to barracks.
