According to UNB, a message of the rebel BDR soldiers slipped out of their besieged headquarters urged the people and the journalists to stand beside them and extend cooperation.
The message written on a piece of paper was thrown out to journalists at BDR gate-4 from inside the rebel-taken headquarters.
“We’ve taken up arms today because we’ve been repressed by army officers for long,” the mutineers’ message reads.
“Our rights were snatched away and our back was pushed to the wall. Stand beside us,” says the message of the rebels holed up inside the HQ cordoned off by army and RAB troops.
