BNP Demands Fresh Investigation Into Peelkhana Carnage

BDR Mutiny
Terming the BDR mutiny trial a farce, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday demanded a fair, impartial and fresh investigation into the 2009 Peelkhana carnage.

“The BDR massacre took place as part of a deep-rooted plot to make the country’s border unguarded. The trial of the heinous incident was not held properly,” he said.

The BNP spokesman made the remark while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at the grave of BNP founder late President Ziaur Rahman marking the recent release of BNP vice-chairman Sadek Hossain Khoka from bail.

On February 25, 2009, hundreds of BDR (now BGB) men staged an armed revolt at Darbar Hall during a three-day ‘BDR Week’ inside its Peelkhana headquarters and killed 74 people, including 57 deputed army officers.

“We demand a fair and neutral investigation into the BDR mutiny incident to identify the mastermind of the incident. At the same time, we also demand a fair trail of the incident,” Fakhrul said.

Describing the February 25 as a Mourning Day for the nation, he said, “The country’s independence had been put at a stake on this day in 2009. Those don’t believe in the country’s sovereignty were behind the incident.”

The BNP leader alleged that the masterminds of the grievous incident have not been brought to justice and even they were not implicated in the ceases filed in this regard.

Referring to the snatching of three JMB militants from a prison van, Fakhrul alleged, “It’s now clear to the nation that Awami League is the patron and instigator of terrorism and militancy in the country.“

He accused the government of resorting to state terrorism to suppress the opposition, and the current regime is using the state machinery to suppress the opposition.
