The border guards which shot their superiors brought in Ulaanbaatar for further investigation

The four border guards which shot and killed three of their superior officers brought in Ulaanbaatar last night by Helicoper. Some detail of stand-off between the border guards and their pursuers near Alag mountain close to Sainshand, capital of Dornogovi aimag have emerged. According to anonymous source at the Border Troops Authority, negotiation with the mutineers took three hours.

Mutineers demanded car to go to Darkhan city in north-central Mongolia and open the encirclement by police. They threatened to kill hostage with rank of corporal if their demands were not met. After lengthy negotiation and talking with their family members on the phone, the mutineers were persuaded to surrender to the police.They had four AK-47 automatic guns with 97 bullets and two pistols with 19 bullets each and signal gun and three daggers. The guns were fully loaded.

"Deglekh" or systematic beating and abusing new soldiers and conscripts by old and senior soldiers was rampant in Mongolian People's Army during 1970s and 1980s. By 1990s, the Army leaders claimed the phenomenon of "Deglekh" uprooted in the Armed Forces of Mongolia. However, cases of beating up young and new conscripts and soldiers still occurred in the Border Guard Troops.

In June 15,2009, colonel Batbold, commander of the Border guard unit no.0168 in Sulinkheer of Dornogovi aimag kicked and injured Bulgan, sergeant of the unit for failing to water trees. The sergeant Bulgan died later in hospital in Ulaanbaatar due to injuries received in the kidney.Colonel Batbold is charged with manslaughter and it is unclear what sentence he received for the crime.
