A court in Bangladesh's capital has begun hearing cases against another group of border guards accused of taking part in last year's bloody mutiny that killed 74 people, including 57 army officers.
In the same building where the mutiny started last February, the court Tuesday began hearing cases against 86 paramilitary soldiers. They are accused of participating in the mutiny at the Bangladeshi Rifles headquarters.
Overall, about 3,500 troops face charges from the rebellion. Courts outside Dhaka already have begun hearing some of the mutiny cases.
Prosecutors say the mutiny was started in protest over low pay and poor treatment. After guards violently took control of their main barracks in Dhaka, the rebellion later spread to other paramilitary outposts, shaking confidence in the government.
