    Bangladesh court sentences 150 soldiers to death for 2009 mutiny - The Times of India

    AFP | Nov 5, 2013, 02.29 PM IST

    DHAKA: A Bangladeshi court on Tuesday sentenced at least 150 soldiers to death during a mass verdict over a 2009 mutiny in which scores of top officers were massacred, a prosecutor said.

    A judge convicted and sentenced to death the soldiers over the mutiny in which 74 people including officers were hacked to death, tortured or burnt alive before their bodies were dumped in sewers and shallow graves.

    "At least 150 BDR soldiers have been sentenced to death for the massacre of the army officers," lead prosecutor Baharul Islam told AFP outside the court in Dhaka.

    At least another 350 of the 823 soldiers charged over the mutiny were sentenced to jail for their role in the 30-hour uprising that started at the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) headquarters in Dhaka.

    The sentence will be carried out by hanging, I assume? Hangman will have a busy week.
