BSF kills Bangladeshi near Satkhira border

UNB, Satkhira

A Bangladeshi cattle trader was allegedly killed by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Kaijuri-Baikari border in Satkhira early Thursday.
The victim was identified as Sirajul Islam, 32, son of Syed Ali Sardar of Kaliani Chhoygharia village in Satkhira Sadar upazila.
According to Bangladesh Border Guard (BGB) sources, Sirajul with other cattle traders went to India to buy cattle on April 10.
BSF personnel of Kaijuri camp arrested the victim when the party was returning to Bangladesh, and chopped him to death at about 4:30am on Thursday leaving his body in a paddy field, they added.
BGB members sent a letter to BSF authorities protesting the incident and making a request to hold a flag meeting.
Later, two flag meetings were held between BGB and BSF authorities at zero point near Kaijuri border.
However, BSF denied the allegation and said they were not involved in the killing, said Maj Shamim-un Nabi Chowdhury, second-in-command of 38 BGB battalion.
BSF members said they only discovered the body in the paddy field.
Officials of both BGB and BSF agreed to resolve the dispute through discussions and by taking necessary measures.
