1. There is hardly any organization in Bangladesh that enjoys history and heritage older and richer than Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB). Over a period of 217 years, this organization has experienced many political and historical changes, and passed through number of transitions. Such esteemed organization suffered an irrevocable stain due to the incident of 25-26 February 2009 where a group of misguided and unruly soldiers caused a revolt and murdered 57 of their officers including the then Director General. Therefore, a reorganization and reformation was necessary. As a result this region including three others, few more sectors and battalions were raised.
