BIPSS is a non-party, non-profit organization and independent think tank devoted to studying peace and security issues related South and Southeast Asia.
The report said the BDR mutiny may cause serious security consequences for Bangladesh. The primary duty of BDR is to protect the border of Bangladesh and conduct anti-smuggling drive.
According to the report, BDR will not be able to achieve properly their core objectives. It will be difficult for BDR to ensure prevention of inbound and/or outbound infiltration through Bangladesh border and will have a negative impact on BDR’s counter terrorism activities. The report also said that the weapons which are now missing can end up with militant terror groups.
The report said many security specialists feel that the incident is the result of blanket intelligence failure.
