>INVESTIGATORS have so far found involvement of around 450 Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) personnel in the mutiny at the BDR Headquarters while at least 12 of them led several groups of mutineers, Shariful Islam writes.
An investigation into the BDR mutiny revealed that some outsiders had knowledge about the rebellion, said a top official of a law enforcement agency investigating the mutiny in which 74 people including 51 army officers got killed.
“We are now investigating whether they took part in the bloody mutiny,” the official said wishing anonymity.
Meantime, the 11-member enquiry committee, formed by the government to probe the mutiny, interrogated a few accused at Taskforce for Interrogation (TFI) cell in the capital for about four hours from 11:00am yesterday.
“We have found involvement of around 450 BDR officials and jawans in the mutiny scrutinising the video footages and photographs,”the investigator said.
The official said they are now trying to get details about the 450 mutineers by interrogating the arrestees.
