Indian Border Security Force (BSF) yesterday shot a Bangladeshi dead at Durlavpur union of Shibganj upazila.
The victim was identified as Shahidul (20), son of Abdul Malek. He hails from Charpaka village.
Commander-in-charge of the 6 Rifle Battalion Major Alauddin said Shahidul died as the BSF members of the Thakurbari camp in India opened fire on him when he was working in the field adjacent to pillar no 13 of the border.
Later, BSF members took his body into the Indian territory.
The BDR, however, said the BSF members assured of handing over the body at 10:00am Friday following a protest letter from the BDR.
