A Bangladeshi cattle trader was beaten to death allegedly by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) at Burimari border under Patgram upazila yesterday.
Patgram police recovered the body of the deceased from the Saniyazan River in the morning.
The victim was identified as Mizanur Rahman,25, son of Fazlul Haque of Bamondol village near Burimari border.
Quoting family sources, OC of Patgram PS Murshidul Karim said Mizanur Rahman was caught by BSF men of Changrabandha while he along with four others were bringing cattle from India through Burimari border.
Mizanur was tortured severely. When he died the BSF men threw his body into Saniyazan River, he said.
Mizanur's father said that his son and a few other locals went to India to bring cattle on Wednesday. "My son was tortured to death by BSF yesterday morning,” he said.
However, Burimari BGB camp commander Subedar Baset Miah said, he had no information of torturing any Bangladeshi to death by BSF.
