DHAKA: Three more mass graves with mutilated bodies of Army officers and their relatives were uncovered at the Bangladesh Rifles headquarters here on Saturday.
Among the 10 bodies retrieved on Saturday morning was that of slain BDR chief Maj. Gen. Shakil Ahmed's wife Nazneen, a fire brigade official said. There was no word on the fate of the couple's teenage son.
As anger spread across the country over the grisly killings, the Hasina government announced setting up of special tribunals for quick and "exemplary punishment" to the "culprits" involved in the massacre.
Three more mass graves were unearthed by the Army and fire brigade personnel aided by sniffer dogs, a day after bodies of 42 officers were recovered from a drain, including that of Maj. Gen. Ahmed, inside the BDR headquarters. Bodies of 25 others, including three civilians, were also found from the premises and nearby in the last three days.
