Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said that the trial in BDR mutiny cases is almost completed. Gradually, the accused in the case will be brought under justice. 

The minister said this after paying tributes to the army officers, killed in the Pilkhana BDR carnage, by placing floral wreaths at the Banani military graveyard on Monday. 

A group of relegated members of the then Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) killed 74 people including 57 army officers at the Pilkhana headquarters of the paramilitary force on February 25-26, 2009. 

The Home Minister said that those who have left, they will never return. But relatives can see the trials. 

He also said that it will end with justice. The trial process has already ended. In the phases, legal action will be taken against the accused. 

Earlier, on behalf of the President-Prime Minister, the military secretary paid tribute to the army officers. Later, chiefs of three armed forces and BGB director general were among many who paid their homage by placing floral wreaths at the graveyard. 

After laying the wreath, they stood in solemn silence for a minute.
