Dhaka: Bangladesh Wednesday launched the trial of
"core culprits" of the 2009 BDR rebellion where 74 people including 57 army officers of the paramilitary border force were killed.

Metropolitan Session Judge Zahoorul Haque ordered the
trial process to start and framed charges against 850 suspects
in the February 25-26 mutiny at the Pilkhana headquarters of
Bangladesh rifles (BDR) which is now renamed Border Guard
Bangladesh (BGB).

"This is the highest number of accused being tried in a single criminal case," Judge Haque said completing the charge
framing process as the suspect appeared at the makeshift court
complex in old Dhaka under heavy security.

"You want justice, this court will ensure 100 per cent
justice," the judge said.
