DAISY Ahmed missed a heartbeat when she saw something wrapped in BDR uniform lying abandoned at the entrance to her house in Ganaktuli, a locality adjacent to the fifth gate of border guards’ headquarters, The Daily Star reports.
After the February 25-26 mutiny that degenerated into a bloodbath at their HQ, most of the riflemen reportedly fled through the gate 5.
It was 9:00 in the night the next day when everybody thought the wrapped thing was a rifle. But the police discovered a sub-machine gun (SMG) and also recovered 408-round bullets.
Till date the law-enforcement agencies could not confirm how many firearms were taken away from the headquarters or eventually fell to the hands of criminals, posing a threat to law and order.
Hazaribagh police and Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) recovered an SMG, a pistol, 630-round Chinese rifles’ bullets, 470-round SMG bullets, three grenades including two Arges, a wireless set and 15 bullet-chargers abandoned in different areas until March 5.
