Bid to topple Hasina foiled—The Bangladesh army has said that efforts by some rs to topple the Sheikh Hasina government have been foiled and that the process to bring the culprits to justice has begun.

"Specific information (evidence) has been unrthed that some rs in active military service have been involved in the conspiracy to topple the system of democratic governance through the army," an army spokesman said at a press briefing Thursday afternoon.
The spokesman, brigadier eral Muhammad Masud Razzaq, branded these rs as having extreme religious views.
"Some unruly and derailed military rs have been actively engaged in the execution of the heinous conspiracy through maintaining contacts with fugitive Maj Zia (Syed Mohammad Ziaul Huq) by mobile and Internet," the spokesman said.
"On Dec 22 last yr, Maj Zia met a senior r and tried to provoke that senior r into using the army against the state and democracy," the spokesman said.
"The senior r immediately informed the appropriate authorities and his (Maj Zia's) lve and transfer order was cancelled."
"But he did not return to work and has still kept himself engaged in trying to organize subversive activities against the army."
On Dec 28, a court of inquiry was established.
"Stern legal msures will be taken against those involved."
"Recently, at the instigation of some of non-resident Bangladeshis, some serving as well as retired rs with extreme religious views have tried to crte disorder in the army riding on the religious sentiments of other rs," the spokesman said.
"Such heinous attempts are being foiled" by the army, the spokesman said.
