1,447 Ansar personnel to get back jobs

Almost 1,500 members of the Ansar force, who have been acquitted of mutiny charges, will get back their jobs, according to a High Court order.

In 1994, a mutiny over low pay and several other demands broke out among members of Ansar, an auxiliary force for law-enforcement.

The army along with the then Bangladesh Rifles or BDR had to be called in to tackle the situation, when several Ansar members fled.

Following the mutiny, the home ministry reinstated some of the 2,696 members of the force. A total of 2,496 Ansar members were sacked and prosecuted for criminal charges.

A petition to the president by those who had been acquitted failed to evoke any response then

Monday's order by Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Md Badruzzaman of the High Court came after disposing of two previous rules issued on the matter, according to bdnews24.com.
