National Probe committee gets another 30 days to prepare BDR mutiny report

M.A. Kader-Asian Tribune Correspondent in Bangladesh

Dhaka, 31 March, ( The Bangladesh national Inquiry committee has once again sought time to end the probe into the border guard Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) mutiny and carnages at the BDR Headquarters in Dhaka.

The 11-member national inquiry committee sought more time on Sunday to the government and the government has given them 30 more days to submit the findings of the killings.

The committee was re-constituted on Mar 2 and it began work the following day.

The first deadline for its report, Mar 9, had already been extended by seven working days.

On Mar 23, the committee got another four days.

Earlier on Feb 26, the government had formed an inquiry committee headed by the home minister, but later reformed the committee to be headed by retired civil servant M Anisuzzaman amid calls for removal of ministers for the sake of fair inquiry.
The state minister for law was also dropped.

The Feb 25-26 mutiny at the border guards' Peelkhana headquarters in Dhaka left at least 57 army officers deputed to the paramilitary force killed.
