DHAKA (AFP) - Bangladesh is at risk of more attacks "to foil the country's democracy" after a savage mutiny in which at least 74 people were killed, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said in comments published Wednesday. The Premier said her own safety was also at risk, describing as "condemnable" last week's mutiny by paramilitary troops of the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) border guards who killed more than 50 senior army personnel. She said the 33-hour standoff was part of a wider plot to destabilise Bangladesh. "Conspiracies against Bangladesh are not over yet. There is still a plot to foil the country's democracy, independence and sovereignty," she said at a seminar in comments carried by the private online newspaper bdnews24.com. "Many did not like the incident to end so soon; the game is still on and the conspirators are not taking a break." Meanwhile, the Bangladeshi authorities have asked the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to help probe last week's mutiny, US officials said Tuesday. "We have received a request from the government of Bangladesh for the FBI to help in forensic investigation into the mutiny," Gordon Duguid, a State Department spokesman said. Duguid said he believed that the FBI had agreed to the request, but referred reporters to the bureau, which said it had made no decision. "A request for FBI assistance was sent through the US State Department. No decision has been made at this point," said Richard Kolko, a spokesman for the FBI in Washington. "We refer you to the State Department for any additional information," he added in a response to an email query. Meanwhile, the soldier accused of being the ringleader of the bloody mutiny was Wednesday remanded in custody for a week, police said. Touhidul Alam was charged with murder and treason for his alleged role in the revolt, which left 74 people - including 56 army officers - dead and the country's new civilian government facing a major crisis. Alam of the BDR appeared in court after being arrested along with four other men during a raid on a Dhaka slum. "The court of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate has remanded Touhidul Alam and four others in custody for seven days to be interrogated by police," Akkas Uddin Bhuiyan, a police spokesman, told AFP. The police have issued warrants for the arrests of more than 1,000 BDR troops believed to have been involved in the violence. Many of the dead bodies were dumped in sewers, drains and shallow graves. The incident has raised fears for the country's elected government, which took over from an army-backed administration only earlier this year.
