Up to 900 border guards will be tried for charges related to last year's bloody mutiny that killed 74 people, including 57 army officers. Arkhand said they have found no evidence that any political party or militant group was involved in the mutiny. He says the investigation is in its final stage adding that the 900 will be charged soon. The latest prosecutions will be tried separately from a parallel military investigation that is also underway. Overall, about 3,500 troops face charges from the rebellion. Courts outside Dhaka already have begun hearing some of the mutiny cases.
