DHAKA: The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has "agreed to help" Bangladesh in carrying out forensic investigations into the Bangladesh Rifles troopers' mutiny, a media report said on Wednesday.
Acting Deputy State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid told a press briefing in Washington that he believed that the FBI would agree to help Bangladesh in investigating the BDR revolt.
Duguid said that they have received a request from the Bangladesh government for FBI help in forensic investigation into the mutiny. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had sought help from the FBI to look into the uprising by the border guards.
