BDR trouble now in Rajshahi

According to UNB BDR troops of the sector headquarters here staged demonstrations and opened fire on Thursday morning in support of the demands of their colleagues who staged a bloody revolt at the Bangladesh Rifles headquarters in Dhaka.

Local sources said they heard sounds of gunfire and saw smoke coming out of the headquarters, under the jawans’ control since Wednesday, at about 8:30 am, triggering tensions in and around the area.Sources inside the headquarters told UNB that the soldiers expressed solidarity with the mutineers of Dhaka Headquarters on their demand.Like Wednesday, no commanding officers did attend office today.

It could not be ascertained whether the officers were still staying in there residences or abandoned those.BDR personnel took position at different points of the sector headquarters in the northwestern frontier town and remained “on high alert to tackle any untoward situation”, the sources added.Earlier on Wednesday, soldiers virtually took control of the headquarters hours after the mutiny by their fellowmen in Dhaka.

Besides, a good number of BDR men from Chapainawabganj and Naogaon camps came to the headquarters at 12 noon Wednesday and took control of it, but they laid down arms after a few minutes.
