That is details of which one's were disarmed or mutinied as well as those which remained loyal and fought the rebels.
Have you seen A Postscript to the Records of the Indian Mutiny
by G.H.D. Gimlette? The sub-title of the book is "An Attempt to Trace the Subsequent Careers and Fate of the Rebel Bengal Regiments, 1857-1858
" and I think it may provide you with at least part of what you are looking for. There is a seperate discussion of each Bengal regiment that mutinied, was disbanded or simply disarmed, including the cavalry and irregular units. For each of those regiments, the information includes where the regiment was stationed, the officers present and the details of the actual disarming, disbandment or mutiny. If the regiment actually mutinied, there is also information as to what the rebels did following the mutiny and the ulitmate fate of the mutineers.
This is the only book I have found that covers this specific subject matter and I find it very useful. Unfortunately, it does not deal with the relatively few Bengal native regiments that remained loyal so it does not provide all of the information you are looking for, but I highly recommend it nevertheless.
All the best.
