All mutineers of BDR laid down their arms After Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina called them to surrender arms and Bangladesh's army, armed police and elite-force RAB had entered the besieged BDR Headquarters evening. At least 73 people, including 57 army officers deputed at the paramilitary force, were killed in the two-day bloody revolt in Bangladesh capital on February 25-26, 2009. The uprising was first staged at the BDR Headquarters in Dhaka over low pay and poor condition, and it sparked off mutinous demonstrations in other establishments of the border force across the country. Some 3,500 border guards have been accused in some 40 cases in connection with the rebellion around the country and around 4,000 BDR soldiers were arrested and set to be tried on charge of the mayhem.
