According to a report published in Dhaka’s leading vernacular daily Manabzamin, four killer Bangladesh Riffles [BDR] men fled the country on March 2, 2009 by Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight number BG-049 to Saudi Arabia.
With the help of a very influential quarter in the government, not only the flight was delayed for two hours, but the killer BDR men were boarded on the aircraft through a special passage of the boarding bridge, minutes before the flight.
Members of the intelligence agencies arrested another BDR troop named Rafiqul Islam, when he was also attempting to flee to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday. Rafiqul was trying to leave the country by Saudia, Saudi Arabian Airlines flight number SB-801 in the noon.
It is further learnt that, some influential quarters managed safe exit of these killers to a number of foreign destination right after the brutal massacre ended at the Bangladesh Riffles headquarters. Passports and visas of a number of killers were arranged in advanced prior to staging of the brutal massacre. Photographs and other details of the fugitives will also be put online on the websites of Rapid Action Battalion and Bangladesh Police, a source said.
