Mindless massacres imprinted on HQ
It looks like a war zone with hundreds of thousands of bullet cartridges, several hundred pairs of boots and as many caps littering the premises of the BDR Headquarters.
The windows, glasses and walls of different buildings bear the marks of indiscriminate firing. The bloodstained walls and floors of different establishments would remind anyone of houses of the death.
The rampaged Darbar Hall where the assassination is suspected to have been launched is almost destroyed. The wall near the stage and glasses of the Hall received innumerable bullets.
According to witnesses, countless holes were found on the glasses as bullets ripped through those, breaking some into pieces.
During a random visit, all the pieces of furniture inside the Hall were found ransacked and displaced. Over 200 crests were still lying on a table near the stage. Those were supposed to be disbursed among the winners, who took part in various cultural functions and sports.
Massacre was committed at the residences of Maj Gen Shakil Ahmed, director general of BDR, and Col Mujibul Huq, sector commander of Dhaka and also former chief of Dal-Bhat Programme.
Maj Gen Shakil's residence was found totally ransacked with hundreds of bullet marks all around. The floor and walls were found bloodstained, while all the pieces of furniture and utensils were damaged.
Witnesses say the entire first floor of the duplex residence was bloodstained, while the walls were hit by a hail of bullets.
It seems the attackers opened indiscriminate fire on the building from outside and also sprayed bullets when they made the break-in.
The entire stairway of the building was bloodstained as bullet-hit bodies were dragged out from the upper floor.
The atrocities were no less at Col Mujibul Huq's residence, which was badly burned. Two grenades were still lying in front of the house, possibly abandoned by the culprits.
Hundreds of shoes and pieces of uniforms were found lying mainly near the walls around the border guards' HQ.
Sources say the soldiers fled the area jumping over the walls leaving their uniforms and boots behind. The boots and uniforms were also found abandoned at different tents of the soldiers who came from outside the capital.
They left the tents in a hurry, leaving all the valuables, dresses and uniforms behind.
