Default BDR mutiny rocks Dhaka

BDR Chaos!!

Right at this moment heavy machine gun firing, heavy explosion and chaos happening inside Pilkhana BDR Headquarter in Dhaka. Ekushe TV (ETV) shows live picture of outside BDR gate (jigatola), rifles square area. Other TV channel shows bottom headlines. Rumor says - General BDR soldier revolts against high official. Even I can hear heavy gun fire and explosion from the news!!
BDNews24 is down as usual most likely for heavy traffic!

Right now the disgruntled troops are ensconced inside the BDR HQ. The Army has now blocked access. I was hearing the gunfire from around 8:30am along with some heavy artillery. Some civilians were hurt. I am still hearing sporadic shots. I was just at Rifles Square shopping yesterday.

Apparently tempers flared during the Durbar being held on occasion of BDR week.

Gun battle in Bangladesh capital




A gun battle has broken out inside the headquarters of the Bangladesh border guards in the capital, Dhaka, police and TV reports say.
There are no reports of any casualties yet in the gunfight at the Bangladesh Rifle headquarters, officials say.
"There has been a huge exchange of gunfire at the headquarters. We have heard mortar fire," local police chief Nabojit Khisa told the AFP news agency.
Mr Khisa said police were not being allowed to enter the complex.
The Bangladesh Rifles headquarters is located in the Pilkhana area of Dhaka.
The BBC's Mark Dummett, in Dhaka, says that according to reporters at the scene, the clashes are between officers and soldiers of the paramilitary force, which protects the country's borders.
One report said that the gun battle coincided with a meeting of senior Bangladesh Rifles officers.
Reports say that smoke is coming out of the complex and security forces have cordoned off the area. There is no information yet on casualties, but reporters say some civilians walking past the camp have been hit. There are unconfirmed reports that soldiers have also opened fire on a helicopter patrolling above the camp, where the fighting is taking place, our correspondent says.

What the hell is goin on in BD!?!?

It is kind of quiet now save from some sporadic shots. I can see some plumes of smoke. The PM has asked the soldiers to return to the barracks and all grievances will be heard.

I guess the first thing to think is whether this is a fact. Where we can find a valid source for the news.

It's all over now. Al Jazeera said it is over Salary.

BDR had been A-Z corrupted in bribary, it had to happen. Probably the new Administration was not allowing any chance for that, so soldiers were hard pressed with their very low salaries. Could be the main resentment, sparked by some other issue instantly.

Thousands of rounds of gunshots and mortar firing are rocking the BDR Headquarters and adjacent areas in Dhaka as “angry and aggrieved” BDR soldiers launched a violent and armed mutiny against their high command from around 7:45am.

At least four army officers have been killed and dozens have been held hostage, claimed one of the protesting soldiers at BDR gate number-3 at around 10:30am.

Sources said that the number of death could be much higher as the soldiers have been firing all sorts of weapons at all directions.

Fire and smoke can be seen from the outer perimeters of the Bangladesh Rifles headquarters.

According to reports from The Daily Star correspondents, heavy weapons like cannons have been used to damage some buildings, while the soldiers driving armoured vehicles were shooting at any attempt of the Rab or the Bangladesh Army to enter the BDR perimeter.

With all of its five gates closed, hundreds of soldiers wearing red bandana and partly covering their faces with yellow clothes were seen staging armed processions in front of the gates—letting the people know that they were angry.

“We have been deprived for a long time, we have deep grievances,” the soldiers chanted as their slogans.

Meanwhile, due to the violent situation, all the adjacent markets including the New Market have been closed. Doors and windows of all nearby buildings have been closed.

Thousands of people who have homes in the BDR headquarter area have remained stranded while many relatives of BDR officers and soldiers who had either came out of the perimeters or have just arrived from other places were seen crying for their near and dear ones who might have been held hostage by the situation.

At about 11:45pm, army personnel were trying to enter inside the BDR headquarters as the BDR soldiers guarded all its gates.

Thousands of army personnel have encircled the BDR headquarters and are advancing slowly to enter the premises with firing gunshots.

Heavy weapons including recoilless riles and rocket launchers have been deployed. And helicopters are also firing shots inside the BDR compound.

Army personnel are offering to talk with the rebel BDR soldiers over loudspeaker while the rebel soldiers are firing gunshots from inside the headquarters.
