Indian Border Security Force (BSF) beat a Bangladeshi cattle trader dead along Benapole border yesterday.
The deceased is Tarikul Islam, 23, son of Hamzer Ali of Panchvulote village in Sharsha upazila.

The Indian border guards beat up Tarikul mercilessly, leaving him dead on the spot.
The other cattle traders, however, managed to cross the border.
